Description

Currently the password change facility does not require the user’s current password. Due to cross site request forgery an attacker an attacker can change a user’s password if the attacker can entice the user to submit a forged request.

Suggestion:
The current password should be requiered by the password change facillity.

FYI: Long time ago I made an effort (asking in mailinglist) to confirm a password change with the old password.
I'll remove number scheme from your other reports so that you cannot easily see that one report (this one) is hidden.

  • Target version deleted (0)
  • TYPO3 Version set to 4.7
  • PHP Version changed from 4.3 to 5.3

This is not a critical security issue anymore since the User settings module is CSRF protected.

Security team decided to open this issue as usual feature that can be solved with future TYPO3 versions.
