Allows large characters in change password filling in kromitgmbh/titra


Reported on

Jun 13th 2022


The titra application allows large characters to insert in the input field "password" at password change feature which can allow attackers to cause a Denial of Service (DoS) via a crafted HTTP request.

Proof of Concept

1. Login and go to profile or
2. Using password change feature or go to
3. Fill your current password, fill the "Password" and "Password (agian)" input field with huge characters (more than 1 lakh)
4. Click "Change password"
You will see the application accepts large characters. If we increase the characters then it can lead to Dos.


You can get the large character at there (you can increase more)

Patch recemmondation:

The password input should be limited to 50 characters or less


This weakness will generally lead to undefined behavior and therefore crashes. Such as DoS: Crash, Exit, or Restart; DoS: Resource Consumption (CPU); DoS: Resource Consumption (Memory); DoS: Instability
