Regard Origin when Login

Post by cmb » Wed Apr 09, 2014 1:26 pm

Hi Christopher,

I have noticed that the login request doesn't regard the origin (i.e. protocol, hostname and port) that requested the login form, so that login to the stats is not possible, if, for instance, the webserver is listening on a non default port, such as 8080.

Apparently, that is caused in password_protect.php lines 233 and 293 where the form action attribute's value is set to the htmlspecialchar'd PHP_SELF. I replaced this with a hard-coded "./show_stat.php" and that worked fine. I have not found any side-effects, but I am not sure that there are none.

Maybe something to consider for the next release of Crazystat.

Best regards,

password logins are also used:
- in the log-tool
- if you directly access something like logs.php or show_log.php
But these are things you usually don't do ;)

But thanks for the feedback.
Hopefully I won't forget to fix this in the next release

I try to support my users as best as I can.
Please support me and CrazyStat in return. Thanks.
