Stealing passwords from infosec Mastodon - without bypassing CSP | PortSwigger Research

I have two problems:

  1. I can’t update to the latest version when using YNH
  2. I can’t set 2FA as somehow my password is no longer accepted by mastodon… it seems as if YNH SSO takes care of logging in, but then when logged in, doesn’t allow me to enable 2FA

Maybe it is time to merge this one? @ericg

Merged, thank you for the ping!

Maybe it’s something stupid… or it’s me… But it do not federate well… like it is a silo… Do I need to open a port or something like that?..

Any tips and tricks with the installation… ?? or is it just click and done…

I’m having this same issue (not being able to enable 2FA), were you able to get this working? :smiling_face:

no… still not possible… would love to get some pointers
