When logging into the forums (tested with the Matrix Online game forums) your sessionid is passed along the URL. And images/etc that link to other websites pass this URL along as the referrer. This URL can be used to log in as that person with out any authentication.
Lithium has been contacted directly by me about this. I am waiting to hear back from then. SOE was also contacted it has not been fixed (5 months now) but they did say they would "pass it along"
