Impact

Brute force vulnerability when using password authentication via Sorcery. The brute force protection submodule will prevent a brute force attack for the defined lockout period, but once expired protection will not be re-enabled until a user or malicious actor logs in successfully. This does not affect users that do not use the built-in brute force protection submodule, nor users that use permanent account lockout.

Patches

Patched as of version 0.15.0.

Workarounds

Currently no workarounds, other than monkey patching the authenticate method provided by Sorcery or upgrading to version 0.15.0.
