Hey there,

I am using the users.txt file to save all the data currently. But I fail to
understand why does it save the last host address of the user on file. I
mean, sure to prevent a CSRF, but that thing is taken care of while the app
is running. Any change in the host address mid-session will be caught. Then
again, what's the need to save it on file. Also, wouldn't it be a problem
when the user actually tries to access his/her account from a totally
different network.

U're still standing coz it illegal to KilL U
