The e-commerce.

global variables issue


Recommended Posts

I am just setting up a store, and am loving oscommerce. I was able to complete rebrand it in one day (all be it a 18hr day) still it was great to achieve so much in one day.


I had a look at the Bugs list and found some references to a potential security issue with global variables - people reporting customers being able to see other customers orders.


I found a contribution that talked of fixing the need for having global variables enabled but I am not sure if I need to be applying this or not.


Could someone give me a bit of an explanation on this problem, and how i could reproduce it to see if I have it at all. I have been a bit confused if it occurs when global variables are enabled, or disabled and even how to tell if my service provider has them enabled anyways.
