Description Jesus M. Rodriguez 2009-04-14 00:05:42 EDT
userb (of orgb) can enter the channel id of a shared channel from usera (of orga)
into the channel edit url, and proceed to make a change to the channel. The user
will see an error, but when they return to the Manage Software Channels page, the 
modified channel appears and the org_id of the channel is changed to that of userb
*NOT* usera the original owner.

1) create 2 orgs (orga, orgb) and give them a trust
2) create a new channel in orga and share it to orgb
2a) make a note of the channel id
3) login as orgb
4) create a new channel in orgb
5) go to /network/software/channels/manage/index.pxt
6) click on the new channel in orgb to see the page
7) now change the cid param in the url to be the cid from step 2a
8) hit enter
9) notice you can now edit the channel *THIS IS BAD*
10) change the Channel Name to 'you have been pwn3d'
11) hit 'Update Channel'
12) notice you get an error page.
13) return to /network/software/channels/manage/index.pxt
14) observe the newly edited channel appears in the list *THIS IS BAD*
15) login as orga
16) go to /network/software/channels/manage/index.pxt
17) notice you no longer have the channel from step 2 in your list.
