Security for Registered Shoppers


Recommended Posts

We received an email today from an account holder: "I opened your website to shop today and discovered I am logged in as {name omitted}. I can see her orders, change her orders etc. This is not good security! Thought you might like to look into it."


It's been nearly a year since I set up OsCommerce for the site and I have no clue where to start. Anyone else have this issue, or know what I need to do to make sure it cannot happen again?

There are a number of things that can cause that. Check to see if you have this line in your configure file

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');

Also check the cache settings in admin. If that is enabled, make sure it is using a private directory for storage.
