Not signing out - Users logged in as others (And admin)
#1
On our forum, we suddenly started experiencing a really weird phenomenon.    Users are unable to logout - and when clicking to different pages (or the front page) they are logged in as other members, including admin accounts with full powers and access. 

I turned the board offline in an attempt to find the time to sort it out - but it's being really really wonky.  And no one edited the templates, no one messed with the coding...so it's literally just a random event.

I'm not the coder that made our site - so I am at a complete loss with this security issue.  Help? D8

I've also tried to force the default theme on all users so I can see if it's the coding of our skins - and it reverts back to the normal default skin when I click the skins/templates tab.

your web server has some type of weird cache (eg. Varnish #) which is affecting login cookie.
basically your web host has to fix it.

Allright, thank you very much! I'm on a chat with our host right now... And it looked like they escalated our ticket.

So we've talked to our host for the last 5 days and they said that it's not their issue and that we need to contact a web developer... So I am at a loss....where even would we go to contact someone like that? He'll what language is it in...


Would moving hosts resolve our issue or will we have the same thing
