I was really hoping that GARS wouldn't be affected..... Looks like GARS is going to need to be recoded a little...

Ok, guys -- here's the fix:

The following needs be added to all of the forms which POST back to vBulletin or a vBulletin script (Inside the <form> tags). This will automatically be filled out with a 40 character hash that is unique to the user:
Code:
<input type="hidden" name="securitytoken" value="$bbuserinfo[securitytoken]" />
There is also some other code to add for Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection, but I think Morgan will include that into the next version.
