Can't wait to hear what it was.
The OP might have done some of the people on the forum a favour by hijacking their accounts. :lol:

IMPORTANT!: Serious Portal Security Issue

Its often difficult to tell people about this and if I was to raise a ticket, well, i would be asked to clear my cache and reboot my computer ( Shockedops: ) and I dont want wait on the phone....

I guess I've just shot my self in the head tho, I have both a responsability to Plus Net (to inform them of the issue) but now to the users (to ensure there is no concerns)

i have asked to be kept in the loop (fingers crossed) but if not, I do hope Plus Net gives an open update....

personally, i like the fact your username/password for the portal is not over https myself but have never bothered to raise the issue.

Am I hot or cold or frozen?
