    Unanswered: how to get error 952 when wrong password IDS FC9?

    Hi everyone, im having a problems with the code error 952 when the users inputs password wrong because informix shows me error 951. Im using informix 10.00.00.FC9 on aix 5.3.

    When we had IDS 10.00.FC4, when the user inputs wrong password he got error 952 which wrong password, now we are using 10.00.FC9 when users inputs wrong password he gets 951 error.

    Researching, we found this is a expected behaviour to prevents attackers to know when they get a valid login. But our application needs to knows when the users input wrong password. Is there any way to keep getting the error 952 when wrong password?? Or any idea to let application when the password is wrong with this fixpack?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I do not see any problem here: if your user gets error 952, that means he/she entered wrong password. Otherwise your user is trying to hack your system.
