This time I had to type in a text editor and try every combination of what I thought the password was until I finally got lucky and unlocked it. Then I looked at the password and was like, "Ugh! Of course." Blush | :O

I had to do that once with a web site... I tested over 200 combinations within very few time (I am a a keyboard guy and can do copy, tab, paste, very fast)

After finding out my password again I wrote them an email...

- No password confirmation field, yes... only one field for the new one (in my case an "o" had gone "i")
- Automated brute force attacks not handled, I never got a delay or any other "slow down, pal" message...
- Klicking a Link in one of his emails brought to a debug info page where one could see things I consider shouldn't be there "public"

And that is in a finance related web... D'Oh! | :doh: Sigh | :sigh: Sigh | :sigh:

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
