    Failed Login Script

    murpg Level 1
      Hello, I am trying to create a failed login script. I am setting the variable in the session scope but I am not quite sure how to get the count process going correctly. After 3 trys I want to lock the person out. I am using cflogin in my application.cfm file. Can someone please help me with the logic of this.

      Here is my code.

          In your app file where you redirect the user back to login.cfm if their username and pass dont match with the one in db, place a <cfparam name="Session.FailCount" default="1">
          <cfset session.FailCount=Session.FailCount +1>
          <cfif session.FailCount is 3>
          your msg: You have exceed the 3 trials....etc

          You can submit your msh as a url variable to the login page
