Session expired or cookies are not enabled (Spoof Check Not Working)

9 months 3 weeks ago #329113 by kurtboeker
Users have been reporting this error and are unable to register or login even though "Spoof Checking" is disabled. I made these two changes to comprofiler.php and it seemed to resolve the issue. I hope this can be fixed in the core so I don't have to apply this fix every time I update!

	$spoofCheckOk				=	true; // -JM 2022APR06
	if ( cbSpoofCheck( 'login', 'POST', 2 ) ) {
		$spoofCheckOk			=	true;

	//if ( ! $spoofCheckOk ) {
	if ($spoofCheckOk == false) { // -JM 2022APR06

Your fix is just forcing the spoof checking off at all times. The spoof check is there to stop people from sending requests to the login form externally. Do not remove that. You need to figure out why your site is losing the spoof data in the POST. Are you using a custom login module or made modifications to the login module? Note your change doesn't apply the registration.
