Summary0004140: Changing password should require the old password.

If a user want's to change their password, they should be asked about their old password (like on most sites in the web or passwd on Linux).

This prevents quick changes of the password by someone who has access to an unsecured laptop for a few seconds.

The damage can be bigger than just deleting all your E-Mails (I hope the admin makes backups xD), since the password can also be used for other services besides SOGo.

TagsNo tags attached.

I confirm this, I was about to open the same issue.
This is a serious security issue.

I confirm this issue is still there in SOGo 4.0.
Please fix this, guys! Thanks

Is there still no update regarding this major security issue after 3 years now?
In combination with other vulnerabilities, such as XSS or CSRF, this could lead to account takeover attacks.

Increase security by requiring the current password when changing the
password. This increases the security for cases such as XSS, or just a
forgotten browser window left open.
