Valerie Holfield reported a vulnerability in the automatic login feature in phpmyfamily.

 > When a visitor (someone who's not logged in) clicks to
 > download a document and then leaves the page, they
 > are automatically logged in as 'nobody.'
 > 'Nobody' now has the right to add people, change
 > information, upload and delete documents and images,
 > and is even given the option to change password
 > (although not sure what the system considers the
 > current password to be).

The vendor subsequently reported that the flaw only affects systems with "register_globals 
= On" in their 'php.ini' file.

A fixed version (1.3.1) is available at:
