Trouble with BruteForceProtection

Reported by Deleted User | February 21st, 2009 @ 07:17 AM

it seems no methods are called in module BruteForceProtection if you enter a false password, so the failed_login_count column is never updated !

If the login and password is OK, the methods are called, but the result is true because the failed_login_count column is zero, so no BruteForceAttack seen....

my UserSession :

class UserSession < Authlogic::Session::Base
  # enforce 'acts_as_authentic :logged_in_timeout' in User Controller
  logout_on_timeout true
  consecutive_failed_logins_limit 5


my user table :

  create_table "users", :force => true do |t|
    t.string   "login",                                       :null => false
    t.string   "crypted_password",                            :null => false
    t.string   "password_salt",                               :null => false
    t.string   "persistence_token",                           :null => false
    t.string   "single_access_token",                         :null => false
    t.string   "perishable_token",    :default => "",         :null => false
    t.integer  "login_count",         :default => 0,          :null => false
    t.datetime "last_request_at"
    t.datetime "last_login_at"
    t.datetime "current_login_at"
    t.string   "last_login_ip"
    t.string   "current_login_ip"
    t.datetime "created_at"
    t.datetime "updated_at"
    t.string   "email",               :default => "",         :null => false
    t.string   "language",            :default => "fr",       :null => false
    t.string   "status",              :default => "register"
    t.string   "first_name"
    t.string   "last_name"
    t.integer  "failed_login_count",  :default => 0,          :null => false

any help on this ?
