Good Morning All,

I have been beating my head up against a wall with this for about a week (on and off).

I have a site and on the news module if you select the RSS feed button it gives you the link of the unformatted feed.


While having the site tested for vulnerablilities, they noticed that if you remove the end of the url (/DesktopModules/News/API/News.rss) and try to access the feed that way, it prompts a security window.

The problem with the window is it is vulnerable to brute force attacks as it allows as many attempts as possible.

My question is, can I have this popup not happen, or redirect to the original page /DesktopModules/News/API/News.rss?TabId=106&ModuleId=559, or just block it from showing with no popup?

that would require a change in whatever 3rd party module is providing the news service framework calls (its not something shipped with DNN platform)

Buy the new Professional DNN7: Open Source .NET CMS Platform book Amazon US
