    The Forgot Manager Login plugin distributed with all versions of MODX Evolution (and 0.9.x) contains a vulnerability that allows users to gain unauthorized access to the MODX Manager.

    Affected Releases
    All MODX 0.9.x/Evolution releases prior to and including MODX Evolution 1.0.6 are affected.

    There are three ways to resolve or mitigate the issue:

    1. Disable Forgot Manager Login plugin
    2. Upgrade Forgot Manager Login to version 1.1.4
    3. Upgrade to MODX Evolution 1.0.7.

    A special thanks to community member Agel_Nash for reporting the full scope of this issue directly to MODX so a resolution could be made available before details were. [ed. note: opengeek last edited this post 11 years, 8 months ago.]
