Unique password for the admin panel

Post by mpelmmc on December 11th 2010, 8:43 pm

Hello everybody Very Happy

Today, I want to suggest this feature for forums. It's a unique password for the admin panel.

Currently we can put the option "Confirm password to administration access" in:

PA => General => Securiy => Confirm password to administration access => Yes.

But, in this situation, if a hacker, "hack" (find our password) our forum, he/she can access to the admin panel, and do a "total destruction" in our forum. So, the suggestion is a new feature in PA => General => Security, a proposed name would be "Unique password for the admin panel".

The role would be, they have a unique password to access the administration panel, and without this password, the "hacker" can't access to the admin panel. Obviously, the administrator founder inform to the co-admins this password.

I think this is all. I think isn't necesary to tell, that the password can change the admin fundator of the forum.

I don't know if I have expressed well... You can tell me the dudes or comentarys (:


Bye.

Yeah, this would be a good way to limit the access to an important place like the ACP, and protect our forums as much as possible against an attacker.

No way affraid

Because then, all the "hacker" has to do is get a lucky guess or whatever.
Added to that, if the password isn't personal, some people tend to have their tongues less loose then it should be :/

Too dangerous in my opinion

This I suggest, will be a second password. We will have the normal option (Confirm password to administration access) and this.

But the password I say, only know the admins of the forum, and if you put an admin, at least I trust him geek

Think about the current number of people who can't remember their password. If we add this feature, that number will double.

@ KingOfSports , i don't think its that people can't remember the password , there seems to be a fault somewhere in the forum makeup judging by the number of people who cannot get into their forum's including myself , when i setup the forum as with all sites i always write my signin name and passwords into a book

I don't think this would be very practical. The support forum receives hundreds of PM's a day about lost founder passwords and this would only increase the work load for the staff that have access to the tools to reset there admin panel.

Voted No

Would be good protection, but as said before. The number of people which lose their passwords would atleast double.

I can see the logic behind this idea, but I don't support it. I've voted no. Purely because people would forget their passwords twice as much and that it wouldn't really "protect" your forum better...

Just be careful of who you choose as your administrators and you'll be fine. Wink

That is the best way you can protect your forum. Just watch who you make administrator, and like Base said, you'll be fine.

I think if you can't remember your password, and you have to have it reset by Typlo or MrMario, you shouldn't have another password to remember. Typlo is busy enough, he doesn't need a another work load of password resets.

=> Vote: No

You will not get any support here. This is not the correct section. Wink

I'm not so sure about this though. I like it, but I don't. I won't vote because I'm not sure. Sorry though.

If a hacker could hack into your first password, they can probably hack into this one. However, it could buy you a little time for someone to figure out you're being hacked and take steps to lock them out.

I voted yes.

The matter is not "the hacker has hack your password", it's "the hacker has GUESS your password"... The hacker may can guess one, but if the second one is very different he probably won't guess the password...
