[Lockdown] CF Scripts URI Should be Random

| View in Tracker

Status/Resolution/Reason: To Fix//BugVerified

Reporter/Name(from Bugbase): Peter Freitag / ()

Created: 06/20/2018

Components: Security, LockdownGuide

Failure Type: Incorrect w/Workaround

Priority/Frequency: Minor / All users will encounter

Vote Count: 3

Problem Description: The lockdown installer remaps the /cf_scripts URI to /cfscripts_2018 - there is no benefit in changing it from one known default to another known default - if it is going to change it, it should contain some randomness or let user specify a value. 

Steps to Reproduce: Run lockdown installer

Actual Result: Changes /cf_scripts to /cfscripts_2018

Expected Result: change it to an unpredictable value.

Any Workarounds: You can change it again manually.



what anything actually changed with this? Isn't this for cfform and/or cfclient?

+1 - Maybe set randomness every CF start?

+1 pointless if predictable!

It is not secure to switch from one default value to another default value. The installer should prompt the user for a name to use. Please fix this.
