And another (same) bug in DCForum at user registration process (dcscripts.com)

When registering a user and not allowing him to choose a password, a
password is generated by the same algorithm as the algorithm used when
creating new password for a user who lost it.

Once again, the password is predictable, thus bypasses all limitations of
using a valid mailbox for user registration (user can use a fake E-Mail
address, and still know his password)

In Lib/user_register.pl:

   if ($r_in->{'command'} eq 'register') {

      if ($r_setup->{'auth_register_via_email'} eq 'on') {
         my $session = get_session_id();
         $r_in->{'password'} = substr($session,3,6);

Should be random. Use the same patch as with the other bug:


Have fun.
