    So something really weird just happened..

    I was reading some random thread on BHW and i hit the HOME button..
    Suddenly i got the white version on BHW and i was logged in as the member Xp3r7.
    I thought it has to be some glitch so i just hit the HOME button again fast and it was all back to normal.

    Than i searched on the forum for the member named Xp3r7 and i msged him about what happened and ask if he is using a white version of BHW.. And to my surprise he did..

    So how is this possible ? I was actually logged as another user for a moment on BHW.

    I dont know if anyone else have experienced something like this, i just thought i should share it.

    Like I said in my reply, it happend to me few times.
    It's some bug in the session/cookies but I belive it have to be fixed, because someone may use it for bad things.

    Once again, thanks for letting me know :)

    LoL it scared the shit out of me man..I found and msged you asap loll

    And if this has happened in the past also than its a bug that must be fixed for sure..

    But i dont think that you can do any harm thou since you are only logged in for a sec, once you click on any other link after the session is swapped you are back to normal..

    Every 100 times you login, you get to be somebody else for 20 minutes.
    It is a cool feature and allows you to troll under other peoples names.
    I think they introduced it when they got rid of rep.

    Depends on what's the bug exactly. If it changes the session/cookie, I can use that moment when I'm logged in as another user, to save it and then replace it. This way I'll continue using the forum as "the victim" until his session is alive. I believe most of us checked that "Remember me" thing and this will give the "h4x0r" enough time to do whatever he wants.

    If this post is considered 'dangerous' it may be removed or I will edit it on request.

    Something similar happened to me one on crakrevenue. I got to my account to check referrals and suddenly I had more than 7k in earnings from referrals. Than I saw it, it wasn't my name, somehow I got into another account.

    Cache issue, you shouldn't be able to do anything for the split second you are someone else, except see their notifications.
