Weak Password Requirement in thorsten/phpmyfaq


Reported on

Oct 20th 2022


We can change password with just 1 character when we use change password function.

Proof of Concept

When you change password, just press an charactor and then submit. Your password has been changed.


When users change password to a too simple password, attacker can easily guess user password and access account.
