Doesn't work. You will get an error when you fill out the form saying bad code

I'd like to get verification from an Admin that this is nothing to worry about.

If this is true, it could be very harmful.

To fix temporarily, while waiting for a real fix or an "All Clear" from SMF Admins...I just disabled password reminders...You can basically rename/delete Reminder.php in the sources folder.

It is nothing to worry about. This does not work at all there are checks in place and the change code is randomly generated. You can try it on your own test board/forum it will not do anything

so your stating that the exploit would not work. These issues are what cause people to lose faith. BTW if i wanted as of right now i would be able to gain admin privilege here.


for those whim may be skeptic of this issue please look again. you right a simple copy past will not work with this your going to receive user does not exist however changing this string by a bit will allow you to gain admin right. It's sad that defacement have to happen for this to be patched.

you will have as much luck as if you guess the password itself. maybe little bit more. until someone proves this works, it's just bull.

No reason to panic or spread one. If there is no security risk then there is no rush to act immediatley on it.

Yes, you can make it bring up the change password screen.

But, the change password screen doesn't work, it gives a user does not exist message every time.

This is nothing to worry about.
