Venki Supravizio BPM 10.1.2 does not limit the number of authentication attempts. An unauthenticated user may exploit this vulnerability to launch a brute-force authentication attack against the Login page.

Weakness

The software does not implement sufficient measures to prevent multiple failed authentication attempts within in a short time frame, making it more susceptible to brute force attacks.

Affected Software

Name Vendor Start Version End Version
Supravizio_bpm Venki 10.1.2 10.1.2

Potential Mitigations

  • Common protection mechanisms include:

  • Use a vetted library or framework that does not allow this weakness to occur or provides constructs that make this weakness easier to avoid.

  • Consider using libraries with authentication capabilities such as OpenSSL or the ESAPI Authenticator. [REF-45]
