HackThisSite.org News: Weekly Update - Dec 16, 2013

With the recent code changes pushed on Sunday comes new features and bug fixes.

Users are now allowed to log in to their accounts anonymously which means you will no longer show up in the "Current Online Users" list on the home page. This *does not* mean that you are anonymous to the site. To access this feature, click the Login link next to Register where you will see a check box allowing you to be logged in anonymously.

Basic missions 4 and 5 have had their email systems updated to prevent the site being blacklisted by mail servers. The mission now checks that the email you attempt to send it to is the one you registered your HTS account with.

Lastly, we previously updated various features to use a nonce which helps us prevent CSRF attacks. A few of the features still had bugs while using the nonce and they should be updated.
