Error description

  • Security risk:IBM Sterling File Gateway user lock functionality
    does not work correctly when FGLockInterval property is set
    higher than 35791 minutes.
    
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1> Modify customer_overrides.properties and set
    filegateway_ui.FGLockInterval=43200
    filegateway_ui.FGConsecFailedAttempts=2
    2> Restart the SI
    3> Logon with FG user logon with incorrect password. 2
    consecutive failed attempts will lock the account.
    4> Check the lock manager. It states that the lock is expired.
    5> Now logon to FG UI with correct username and password and
    you get the message that the account is locked.
    
    Expected Behavior:
    The lock manager should reflect the correct lock value. In this
    case, it is 43200. It should not be expired.
    For 43200 minutes, the user account should be locked and user
    should not be able to login unless the user account is unlocked
    by the administrator.
