|Summary||0009789: password policies and lockout for failed login attempts|
I would like my mantisbt could be accesible from internet, but I think it could be insecure.
Could you add password policies and lockouts to failed attempts to login ?
I hope you can help me.

I agree that this would be a nice addition. I was thinking of the same thing lately. Would be nice to capture some brainstorming of what should be done:
It´s is also related to thread http://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=9788
This is what the config_defaults_inc.php says about $g_max_failed_login_count
I didn´t really explore the code, but I can say that the statement "Value resets to zero at each successfully login
When attemping to login with wrong username/password, browser message is: "Your account may be disabled or blocked or the username/password you entered is incorrect."
But thats not true - account isn´t disabled or blocked. After $g_max_failed_login_count an attacker can keep on trying to brute force.
It should show eg.: "Your account is disabled or blocked. Even if you provide the correct username and password this time, login isn´t possible. Please click 'Lost your password?' to make use of password reset functionality.". ... And of course the "Value resets to zero" thing should be removed rersp. rewritten.
