Support » Plugin: Active Directory Integration / LDAP Integration » Reveal valid users in login errors

    Hi,
    we’re using LDAP plugin with WordFence.

    In some cases (as WordPress default), some information is exposed to final users (for example, valid usernames during login).

    WordFence has a function to “Don’t let WordPress reveal valid users in login errors”.
    However, due to login error codes generated by the LDAP plugin, this function is not triggered.

    wpldaplogin.php
    
    $error = new WP_Error();
    $error->add('LDAP_USER_BIND_ERROR', __('<strong>ERROR</strong>: The password you entered for the username <b>'.$username.'</b> is incorrect.'));
    return $error;

    This works using:
    $error->add('incorrect_password', ... )

    Do you plan to support WordFence or have plan to expose less data to potential attackers?

    Kind Regards,
    Marco

    Hi @cyberlord92 and thank you!

    I also noticed that WordFence bruteforce protection doesn’t work due to different error strings. I was able to get it working with the change of error string to

    $error->add('authentication_failed', ...
