    Hi WP,

    I apologise if this is in the wrong section, I wasn't sure of where to put it. I'll try my best to explain the situation at hand.

    Simple intro of project: WP site that allows users to pinpoint stories to a geographical location.

    Anyways, the issue is a security flaw regarding cookies on wordpress sites.

    Or maybe I've misunderstood the whole thing and I'm talking cobblers! Just need some input on this. It'd be helpful!

    Thanks for your time. I'd appreciate it greatly!

    Never, EVER, post details of possible security issues on a public forum! See FAQ_Security instead.

    My apologies! That's my mistake!! I should've realised that. Thanks for the link. I'll follow that FAQ of what to do next. I forgot to copy and paste the content! Are you able to forward this on if not I'll need the post contents please.

    [edit] - Luckily I had another tab open with the content! I've emailed the security team.
