Actually no :/
Looking again, it turns out I don't have a cookie for bbuserid at all. (I must have imagined this one, after seeing my username in the requests.

I have only bbsessionhash, in addition to bblastactivity & bblastvisit.

Is this the problem? Sounds kinda likely.
You still want the value of the bbsessionhash cookie?

No, I have checked the source and I don't check bbsessionhash anymore, as there were some problems with it.

Interesting you don't have bbuserid set.

Assuming that the cookies all come from the same URL, I'm trully baffled.

Where I use whitelisting for scripts, I use blacklisting against adservers tied to corporate websites that I use; basically blocking certain images and cookies, this is all purely URL based.

Its also strange that over two system installs, and three browser setups, as well as connecting to oook before I got around to tightening my browser, this problem has always persisted. Also, when I've occasionally been here from other peoples (pretty much out of the box) Win boxes.

Any reason why an ISP might erroneously filter that cookie? Its the only thing I can think of that was mutual to all these cases.

EDIT - I'm gonna assume that not having bbuserid set is why my login times out pretty quickly, I generally have to log in again after typing one of my longer-winded posts.

Except from zero-day exploits and exploits that M$ can't patch in a timely fashion because of their proper regression testing. Fortunately, M$ has caught on to the public relations implications of letting holes intentionally go unpatched for several months; the last time this happened wsa 2005.

The new defaults on IE7 help quite a bit, but you still have to go in and disable a few services manually for non-corporate LAN system (Messenger and NetBIOS).

At some point, I'm going to have to replace the attachment-unaware email client I use as an email filter (worm programs are harmless as plain text). As for Mozilla-style vs. Opera web browsers as an exploit-killer Windows-side: We'll see, but FireFox is getting enough market share that it may already be a target.

Agreed.

Leaving the "remember me" checkbox unchecked when logging in forces this cookie to not exist. (At least, my login times out quickly then).

!! - and, (surprise, surprise) The ladder now knows who I am! Well spotted.

I can probably sleep now...


EDIT - oh, and firefox already is quite a major target, there have been plenty of mozilla-based 'sploits in the wild already, although they have (as far as I know) almost excusively targeted the windows platform.

Although both browsers have large market shares (hence target yield) the other thing about malware authors is that they pretty much to a man have it in for M$oft - even though many of them use Windows themselves.

Ok I have made some modification so it should work now with only bbsessionhash cookie. Was about to ask for testing, but it seems Daven already fixed himself up

Yes, it now seems to work based on bbsessionhash only.

I can't believe the culprit option was right in the login panel all this time... :/

More of a my mistake - running without permanent login is a valid scenario.

Good to have that one problem resolved, anyway.

Well yeah, your mistake as the coder; but certainly shame on me for going through just about everything in User CP and my browser, and despite logging in time and again to test, totally overlooking the one checkbox that had anything _at all_ to do with cookies.

Hahahah! =)
