No Protection against Bruteforce attacks on Login page in kiwitcms/kiwi
Dec 3rd 2022
Description Webpage manager does not limit unsuccessful login attempts allowing Brute Forcing.
Proof of Concept
- Register the account.
- Logout the account and try to login with the different password.
- Take the request into Burp suite intruder, set the payload list to 30(for testing).
- The server is accepting each request and it not limiting the response.
The server should have block the continues request to avoid the DOS attacks. and eventually we can login with the correct password without any blocking message.
The impact is unlimited password attempts leading to Brute Force attacks on the login page.
