Administrator Panel Password

Post by Mehtevas on Fri Apr 03, 2009 8:45 pm

A totally different password for Adminstrators to access the Administrator panel.
Okay, so you know how you can verify your password to enter the Admin Panel? Well i was suggesting that we could set a different password to enter, like if my log in password was (Cheese) i wouldn't enter that to enter the panel you would enter something else (CheeseCake)

Get it?

By the way, (cheese) is not my password.

EDIT: This will be an optition to turn this On and Off in the ACP

If you mean having to log in to the Administration Panel, it's already possible.

Administration Panel (Advanced mode) > General > Security > Confirm password to administration access : > Hit 'Yes', Hit save. Wink

No, not like confirming the password, but setting a different password. Confirming your password is te one you log in with, was thinking like a different password beside the one that you log in with.

What Kinko is suggesting is that we have a separate password for the admin panel.

IE: to enter the forum we use cheese, and to enter the panel, we use a new password - cheesecake.

Personally, I like the moral and forground of this suggestion, and I was going to suggest it a few months back, but didnt Sad

=> yes.

however I myself have too many passwords as it is now. Razz

You can always use the same password for everything, huhohi

This is a waste of time and it's a feature of vBulletin,but I'll support your suggestion Kinko,since it will increase the protection of our forums, thumright

=>Yes :wouhou:

Alas, a hacker who can log on as an admin can use cross site scripting (XSS) to get round the password or possibly discover it. If you havent been stupid in the first place then said hacker will need to be very skilled to get your password in the first place and surely if he is that skilled in the first place a spot of XSS wont be much bother ? Wink

The best solution would be to have an admin panel that isnt integrated into the forum package, one that controls the database and the forum externally, bind it to ip address of the genuine admins and uses completely different login credentials.

It would be great!
Thus the control panels, would be safer!

And of course, also added, which had different passwords.
Each director of the Forum, to put the password you want. Different passwords


Thank you!

Different Password For Admin Panel

Post by Doctor Inferno on Wed Sep 09, 2009 4:16 am

For security purposes, I suggest that we have the option to set a different password of the admin panel. A password different from the normal forum login. For admins who don't want this can simply key in the same password for the admin panel.
