> Hi,
> I find one thing in JAASLoginInInterceptor a little bit dangerous from security perspective
- exception handling.
> JAASLoginInInterceptor throws different exceptions with detail error messages in cases:
> - if user/password are not defined (SecurityException: NO_USER_PASSWORD)
> - and if authentication is failed (AuthenticationException: "Unauthorized : " + ex.getMessage())
> It is very practical for the development, but can give some advices to malicious application.
> I will prefere to throw generic security violation exception for both cases.
> Patch is attached
