Can not proceed: possible CSRF/XSRF attack!

After upgrading, when I as Admin try to delete a post, I get this message:
Can not proceed: possible CSRF/XSRF attack!

What does that mean?

It could mean that for some reason the CSRF-checking cookie was not set upon your login. Try to log-out and log-in again.

Without deep investigation I can't say precisely what the problem could be.

If you can't repeat the same on our test forums, it could mean the error is somewhere on your side.

I have tried to log out en logged in again, but the error remains. today I checked it on another computer and that is the same.

How can I reset the CRF cookie, or disable it?

You can't disable CSRF cookie because it's a part of the security mechanism.

Are you sure you just installed the default version of the board? None of custom modifications are made? What kind of browser are you using?

If you log-in on our site it only proves everything works correctly.

You may try to completely clear all cookies from your domain as well before log-in.

thank you for your quick response.

It is the latest version, I have updated from 2.03.
You can see the board here: (click on Prikbord, it opens in a frame)

I use these plugins:
1. Avatars
2. Signature
3 Captcha
4. 1st news hack

If you wish, I can give you the admin login codes.

I hope that you can help me, as an Admin now is it impossible to delete messages. The strange thing is that I can edit.

I think it's a custom problem so you'd have to pay for the time to resolve it...

Buzz: please drop me an email on ghappa [at] gmail dot com and provide me at least your admin login details so I can check what's going on. If it will be your custom trouble, you will need to pay out our service, but I hope it all won't exceed $10. If it will be our problem, no charge. Thanks.

P.S. Yes, CSRF works for deleting topic/messages and other stuff in the current version. So as soon the CSRF cookie is not set, it won't allow to delete anything. The problem also could be that your forums is called from a frame.

I think it is solved: I have installed a complete new version instead of upgrading the existing one.
Anyway, thanks for your last reply and help Paul.
