I have never used Virtuemart, but the problem smells like a residual 
cookie. It might only be occurring because you logged in and out as 
different users, maybe as the admin, or perhaps you were testing it in 
ways that the end user does not. I'm not advocating the acceptance of 
security problems. Just saying that the problem might not be as bad as 
it seems. Something as serious as that would probably make it to the 
front page of the VM forums.
