Password denial of service


During the scan, Kayran managed to find an Password denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.
Password denial of service is a security vulnerability in web applications that can make the website unavailable or unresponsive by sending a very long password to the server (usually 1M+ characters but it’s different in each case).

This might lead to the website to become temporarily/indefinitely unavailable or unresponsive. These types of attacks are called DoS (Denial-of-Service) attacks. They are named this way because the purpose of these attacks is to prevent service from being provided.


This can be fixed by presetting the maximum character length of the field to which the desired password will be inserted to.
