Recover Password [With MD5 enc type] ?
« on: May 28, 2007, 02:55:42 PM »

hi...

i would like to know how can a user recover his password, when MD5 enc_type is enabled...
i dunno if its already on anope... but a possible way could be
//ns recoverpass nick email
services compare the email and nick if its true
services send an email to user with a new random pass... is this possible ?

setting a password for every user that forgots his... :/

At present the only way would be for the user to ask an oper with sufficiant access to services to use "/ns saset NICK password NEWPASSWORD"

It is possible for a module to be written, but at present there isnt such a module.

One point to note though is it would have to reset the password since MD5 is irreversable.

And then the problem there is, all you need is to find out what email a user used for their nick and you can lock them out of their nick until they read their email. So a reset feature would need to use a comfirmation code system. Where for example you say type /ns resetpass NICK EMAIL, an email is then sent with a comfirmation code which you would then type in and then finally another email is sent with the new password. Making sure the password isnt actually changed til after the comfirmation code is entered.

THnks Dr.Stein. But I have a Problem: It seems not to work as exspected :/

(14:00:05) —› msg (NickServ) ENTERCODE PeSSUAsSt
(14:00:05)   (NOTICE) from (NickServ) Passwort changed to . (IRC)

So the eMail gets sent the entercode works but you don't get the changed password it stays empty :D
So it has a bug. But its nice.

maybe its because I use 1.7.19 "beta" not from svn?

(btw Certus has a similar one, that provides the new password but does a segfault to my services)
