Just a little heads up about an issue that has just cropped up, which I think everyone should be aware of.
Account Security and links
A member of this board posted a link to another message on the board, and after clicking the link it directs the user to the post, however it also directed you to the post from within this person's account - giving anyone unlimited access to the user's PMs, posting and profile facilities. It is an easy mistake to make, and one that can easily be corrected.
When posting a link from the Non League Matters Forum, ensure the URL ends with the post number.
Any session ID or other data can easily be deleted and still allow the link to work. If in doubt, preview post first.
Any questions, PM me.
Just a note to anyone who is wondering, I am no longer a moderator of this forum due to current personal circumstances and work commitments. If you need help, contact leohoenig or Steve walker. Thank You.
