Hi Hani,

I've been trying to test this script against a vulnerable version
configured to use form based authentication but can't get it to work. What
happens is that it reports all accounts as valid ones, even though they're
I'm seeing a 200 OK and a cookie being set in all responses. Could you
share the configuration your using so that I can test the script?

Also, I'm guessing the script needs some additional check to make sure it's
not hitting an error page returning a 200 OK as this would also report all
accounts as valid. One way of doing this is to check one or two random
username and make sure that they're not detected as valid.

What has happened with this script? Did you guys find out why it wasn't
working for Patrik?
