More likely is that his account is in the group that has access to that forum.

Check his permissions using the permission masks.

permissions
permission masks
View forum based permissions

Select that forum and put his name in the bottom left box of the next page and it'll show you if he has access.

No there isn't.
If you account does not have permission you can't get in.

The other time I've seen something similar is if the hosts are running aggressive caching with things like cloudfare and it caches the sessions and then assigns then to the next person who visits.

You have allowed Google to see the forum. Therefore, anyone can see that forum from Google's cache.
