Fortunately 99% of the people run OS's that have no (known) weak ISN.

Still, this also means HTTP POST protection can be bypassed, oh well.. actually not.. because that's caught by another module ;p.

Still.. should be fixed. nenolod? you added the code, so you probably know where the problem lies.

Btw, I would swear I tested this, because it was so logical that this would happen :p.

I think it should be fixed out of principle if nothing else, its still a weakness even if it is minor.

My 2ยข :)
