Davideo7 : I'm summoning you here because some very dangerous things could happen with the chat rooms.

You can now hack Vizzed and log on as anyone.

The way to do it is simple: have the url copied and pasted into a seperate tab on your browser, then swap out the User ID and the username you prefer from your own, and *BAM* you're on chat as them. For example, say I wanted to log on as big fat cat. My URL is:

http:*//www*.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/prochatrooms/index.php?uid=46981&uname=the_casualty&room=Lobby (minus the stars)

big's URL is:

http:*//www*.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/prochatrooms/index.php?uid=46981&uname=big%20fat%20cat&room=Lobby (minus the stars)

They are so similar that it'd be obvious to anyone with basic mind skills that you can hack it.

I'm not the first one to discover this. From what I've heard, septembern can do it too. And I showed leggy and Mega how to do it, and they can do it too.

There is some sort of system put in place to try and keep you from logging in as someone else, but by simply restarting your computer and re-connecting to the internet seems to pass it.

Attached is a screen shot proving that this is possible.

I confirm this.

I did have knowledge of this for a while, but I never really tried it.

Today, I logged into chat as NotJon and wrote a few lines (with permission of course. I'm not a hacker) as him in chat.

It is so easy that even I can do it. And I'm not that intelligent.

If a hacker has the idea to do this, they could hack anyone's accounts.

My suggestion is to remove the current chat until this is fixed, because as is, anyone could be chat banned or impersonated by anyone on site.

Well apparently this must be a flaw with the current chat room and since I don't have the many hours to look into fixing this myself, the chat rooms will be unavailable for the time being. Expect to see it up again sometime in April.

Zamiel :
BTowns :

Since this is an old thread, and has not been an issue since we got the new chat room, could you close it? All it's gonna do is attract negative attention at this point.

Oh geez this wasn't closed? Okay, I'll gut it. Yeah, people might not realize this doesn't apply to new new chat and get worried.
