      Description

      Credit: Kevin Jacobs

      CVE: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=
      (to be entered)

      Login lock outs (LoginServelet.java, lines 82+):
      Lock out after 100 attempts. Timer is reset after 5 minutes.
      Recommend lockout after 5, (email to admin?).. require admin intervention to unlock.

      Note: Default is defined in WebConstants.java can override the static 100 default:

      public static String GP_ALLOWED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS_PER_IP = "security.loginAttemptsAllowedPerIP";

      But the code expects an int, parsing fails, and sets to 100 attempts by default.
