i replied to “David” who is having problems in another thread. i used the quick rpely, and hit reply and my post got added to the end of the thread. perfectly normal
however below that it said
“There has been a mail error sending to email@example.com with Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.”
I have changed David’s actual e-mail address to xxx’s to protect his privacy.
The point however - it that evidently the forum was trying to e-mail him to tell him there is a reply to his thread - and since it failed it showed ME his private e-mail address.
As far as i am concerned this is a major security bug in these forums!!!
At no point should it ever be displaying one member’s private e-mail address to another member.
I can only assume that if any other other members of the forum reply to any of my posts - they will be presented with a similar message - containing MY personal e-mail address.
I would expect an immediate explanation from DRI as to how such a fundamental bug exists in their software!!![hr]
Oh you have got to be kidding…
when i posted that above - after i hit post just below the “saving” screen - were a string of 5 more error messages containing another 5 e-mail addresses!
this is a joke DRI, what the hell are you guys doing???[hr]
haha, i pm’ed jennifer about it - it displayed her e-mail address too (so now i know her surname ;))
glad to see everyone is affected
