Description Guanaco 2004-08-16 05:02:20 UTC
Redirects that point to pages like [[Special:Userlogout]] will log the user out.
This has been used to vandalize user pages by Michael and/or Mike Church. A
"confirm" button could be added to the logout page to prevent this from working.
Comment 1 Timwi 2004-08-16 05:04:59 UTC
JeLuf just made redirects to [[Special:Userlogin]] impossible. As far as I'm
aware, he also put the change live already.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2004-08-16 05:06:02 UTC
This doesn't stop all possibilities; [[Special:Userlogout/Yomomma]] works for instance. Re-opening.
Comment 3 Tim Starling 2004-09-11 11:51:09 UTC
Fixed in HEAD with Article.php 1.224
