XF 1.5 User ID 0 posting on my forum?


Active member
I am getting quite a bit of spam lately.


Thread example:

I cannot click the username as it appears as guest (the user was not deleted). For some reason I have some users posting with the User ID 0.

When I look in the database for the above thread I see this:

I can't seem to wrap my head around how this is possible, I've checked all my permissions and guests should not be able to post in any way.

Is there some sort of Xenforo exploit going around allowing this?

I am using the latest version of xenforo 1.5.15​

I have just replied to your ticket.

Please don't create tickets and post on the forum simultaneously - it just results in duplication of effort.
