After login on page "http://atys.ryzom.com/start/index.php" and follow the link to the forum or mail, the browser shows these url's

If you use these links, no login with name and password longer required and you can go directly to the forum- or mail application, ...

I think, for using this at home it is feature, but at public places it is a security problem or?

Session ID's can be a solution :)

Stop to question a "feature" which makes an automatic monitoring of the forum for new entries easy, square!
This has been working flawlessly for months now .. :P
Notwithstanding, I admit, that the level of attention I have been paying to these forums has dropped a lot during the last months, so I'll survive if someone will fix this *cough" .. "little" security flaw. I'ts just an ingame forum, anyways.
As long as nobody gets his hands on my key or browser history, people will still have to poorly imitate my character name and fetch my guild icon to fool people into perceiving me as the author of their posts. *laughs*

No, this isn't a security problem at public places. It is a feature.

If you logged in public place to this forum, you already send all required login data (Including your Password) in plain text. So don't worry.

It was and it's still a security problem, that's why the login system should use https instead of http.

I should have placed sarcasm braces...

As long as the login process isn't protected by SSL encrypted data transmission, in my opinion the authkey mechanism is only annoying.

re Talva: The behaviour changed for me (and for others as well): The auto-login did not work three weeks ago. I believe it changed sometime last week 8-16th of May.
