[resolved] Suggestion: Login page (4 posts)

    Security issue:

    The login page should _not be_ so specific as to which is incorrect, the username or password. As of 1.5.1.3, it very kindly makes that distinction and so makes it easier to break in.

    I have modified my version to just say "Invalid username or password", irrespective of which of the two is incorrect.

  2. Please submit this as a bug request. The developers rarely visit these forums.

    Thanks for the tip macmanx, I don't think it's a bug though. It looks more "by design" to me.

  4. When you submit the bug, you can select "Feature Request" as the severity of the issue. Trust me, it's the only way to be sure that the developers will see your request.
