Hey guys,

You're likely aware but I thought I'd show you some interesting behavior in your authentication system. Specifically, a Italian user logged in and then assumed my identity. See here http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,137092.0.html

He apparently did not try to do this, the forum server did it automatically for him. Can you guys look into it?

There was a complaint by Osgeld about something similar recently.

Is it possible the forum-generated authentication tokens are not unique?

I have alerted Madbob to this issue. Can you please post here (or report to moderator) if this happens again? Thanks.
