Plugins - Password Forget
Category: Logging in

Many web browsers provide the capability to store all usernames and passwords entered on any web site. Especially on public-access computers, this could pose the risk of stolen user login credentials.

This plugin provides a workaround for this vulnerability, wherein the name of the username and password input fields is changed randomly every time the SquirrelMail login page is displayed. The browser is also asked specifically not to cache these fields.

Please note that in some cases, the browser may still remember user credentials (perhaps on some older or more obscure browsers), however the chances that a same-named username or password field would be displayed again on that computer are very small.

The administrator may, if desired, specify a list of "known clients" for which this functionality will be disabled (for the case when some users should be allowed to harness this browser feature to their benefit when at their home computers).
