Chwala does not log failed login attempts, if the user name exists
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello again,

Chwala does not log failed login attempts to /var/log/chwala/userlogins, if the user name does exist. In constrast to that, a log entry is emitted, if the user name does not exist.

Reproducing is easy: Open the Chwala interface with a browser, enter an existing user name, but wrong password. Have a look into /var/log/chwala/userlogins.

That opens the door to brute force attacks when the user name is known.

Version: chwala-0.4-2.2.el7.kolab_16.noarch

I'm afraid Chwala does not log successful logins either. Failed logins log comes from kolab_auth plugin.
