#5024 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

USER_COOKIE isn't being set on browsers installed with Windows Vista.

Reported by: mossyblog's profile mossyblog Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.2.3
Component: Security Keywords: cookies, USER_COOKIE, PASS_COOKIE
Focuses: Cc:


I found after I installed the wordpress-2.2.3 and proceeded to login, the actual login form would redirect back to itself.

I tested this in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Using AnEc Cookie Editor (FireFox) I could see PASS_COOKIE was being set, but no USER_COOKIE. In that one cookie instead of two is being set.

I then opened up wp-includes/pluggable.php and commented out PASS_COOKIE, which then enabled USER_COOKIE to be set (thus was able to login).

I'm not sure if this is a client-side bug or server-side.

Server Details are:
Windows Vista Ultimate
IIS7.0 (CGI module installed with FastCGI / PHP piped through FastCGI).

Joseph has

ENV: WP trunk / IIS7 on Vista use the ISAPI module

Sounds likely to be something specific to CGI/FastCGI , as Developer Evangelist of Microsoft surely you have the resources to isolate the issue. Thanks.

Closing. I'm sure that if this affected every Vista user we'd have more traffic on this ticket by now. Should close as "seemstobeworkingforpeople" :-)
