    Default Automatic login

    Everytime I come to this forum, I need to go through a login - unlike previous forums which would log you in automatically when you arrived on the scene.
    Is this by design? - or something that hasn't been noticed?

    It's a by product of the way iChain works, which provides all openSUSE official sites with a single sign on.

    If you want it, your choice. But keep in mind that permanent login feature facilitates XSS or CSRF attacks against your accounts/identity.

    Maybe Novell web apps are safe against these attacks, but other apps may not be. Bad habit. I will always advise against permanent logins with any web application.

    In another thread earlier this wek somebody said that a login would hold for an hour, not permanent. In fact it is zero.

    But when I keep a browser window open on say the main page, new windows are loged in already. So it seems that until I logout of KDE I still have a permanent login.

    Quess what people are going to do.
