Not fixed in 2.0.5

SMF guys, this CSRF should help to verify this issue. Can you fix this in next
release? Contact me in case you need help.


This CSRF doesn't work for me on two 2.0.4 installations I tested on.
Both return
  Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again.

There seems to be a CSRF protection in this hidden form field:
  <input type="hidden" name="e2b8c5b3437"
value="bdcc798a0a86fa141da538f7c3a6ec42" />

So this doesn't seem exploitable this way (but it also doesn't make the
XSS bug vanish in the haze, either).

To clarify, I'm a SMF user (and independent tester) not affiliated with
the SMF developers.
