TYPO3-CORE-SA-2022-014: Insufficient Session Expiration after Password Reset

Categories: Development, TYPO3 CMS Created by Oliver Hader
It has been discovered that TYPO3 CMS is susceptible to insufficient session expiration.

Problem Description

When users reset their password using the corresponding password recovery functionality, existing sessions for that particular user account were not revoked. This applied to both frontend user sessions and backend user sessions.


Update to TYPO3 versions 10.4.33, 11.5.20, 12.1.1 that fix the problem described above.


Thanks to TYPO3 security team member Torben Hansen who reported and fixed the issue.
