[3.3] maybe a bug in registration a user ?

Post by effixx »

I have just noticed a strange phenomenon when registering users.
Step 1
A user who has already been registered by the system is supposed to log in for the first time.

MAIL: "[email protected]"

Step 2
The user fills out the registration form again instead of logging in. In doing so, he makes a mistake on typing.

MAIL: "[email protected]"

Step 3
The system informs him that this e-mail address is already taken. Which is fine. But in the database there is now a BUG !
I could see that name of the correponding user_id in phpbb_users was overwriten with "PETET" !
