Oblix NetPoint account lockout bypass could allow brute force password guessing attempts
|netpoint-account-lockout-bypass (8461)||Low Risk|
Oblix NetPoint could allow a remote attacker to bypass the account lockout feature and use brute force techniques to obtain access to the account. An account enters a temporary locked state after repeated login attempts with the wrong password. Once an account's locked state has ended, it cannot re-enter the locked state until after the next valid login, making it vulnerable to a brute force password guessing attack.

- CVE-2002-0453: The account lockout capability in Oblix NetPoint 5.2 and earlier only locks out users once for the specified lockout period, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct brute force password guessing by waiting until the lockout period ends, then guessing passwords without being locked out again.
