[PATCH] Joomla! Developer –  – Core – Password Remind Functionality
On Joomla! Developer –  – Core – Password Remind Functionality:http://developer.joomla.org/security/news/241-20080801-core-password-remind-functionality.html
A possible solution until a patch is available is to use SEQ_SANITIZE from seq_lib. With the described method
none of the found security flaws can be used for an attack.
[B]This is not an official patch! Test this patch before using it in productive environments! As soon as an official patch is released, use it![/B]
1. Download seq_lib
2. Upload seq_lib on the server.
3. Configure the seq_lib-path (if not standard).
4. Include seq_lib in „index.php“.
5. Call SEQ_SANITIZE:
[B]SEQ_SANITIZE – Variable list with expected properties:[/B]
// VARIABLE NAME # SOURCE# TYPE # MIN # MAX # XSS &
$sanitizer = ' token # pg # STR # 32 # 32 # &';
[B]SEQ_SANITIZE – Description:[/B]
SOURCE: p=POST g=GET s=SESSION c=COOKIE (REQUEST is always sanitized)
TYPE: integer,float=INT string=STR
MIN: integer,float: minimal number | string: minimal length
MAX: integer,float: maximal number | string: maximal length
XSS: true=perform xss-prevention
The list of variables which must be sanitized can be extended by adding more lines. Take care to not forget
the boundary characters between the params (#) and at the end of every line (&). In case you do, please send me a copy
to help other user also get secure.
