Unicornisaurous moved T172956: list=allrevisions does not have an arvtag parameter from Proposed tasks to Imported in GCI Site on the Google-Code-in-2017 board.

Unicornisaurous added a project to T172956: list=allrevisions does not have an arvtag parameter: Google-Code-in-2017.

If I'm not mistaken, this would be a reasonable GCI task. I would be willing to mentor.

@Tgr: Sorry I didn't have much time to work on this task today. I submitted a small patch for vagrant but I'm having some trouble adding a check to see if the requested database actually exists (ie. is in $wgLocalDatabases). I'm trying to add a check into Maintenance.php or doMaintenance.php, but I can't find a place to put the check after $wgLocalDatabases is actually populated. (At what point is $wgLocalDatabases expected to be populated? I assume they should be available after LocalSettings are loaded?)

The patch no longer applies since SessionManager was merged. In making and testing a replacement, I noticed that ApiLogin isn't resetting the session ID at all (because LoginForm does it in processLogin() rather than authenticateUserData()), so I fixed that too.

This patch is based on top of https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/264309, which lets us reset all CSRF tokens instead of just the edit token.

This is really a core mediawiki bug, right? The change needs to be made to core API files.

Some of it, but the imageinfo API mostly just fetches data from File objects, so the substantial part of the change would have to happen there.

Looks like jenkins was playing tricks on me, as an even-numbered build machine has also failed the same way. I suspect increasing the timeout will help as in the patch linked here. (The patch isn't actually mine...gerritbot just thinks it was because I added this bug to its commit message)

Unicornisaurous added a comment to T122056: Old tokens are remaining valid within a new session.

Here's a simple patch which, from my initial tests, seems to fix the problem. It just sets the wsEditToken session data to an empty string on logout

You fetched a token, logged out, then logged back in and saw the first token didn't work anymore. But try fetching a second token, then logging out a second time and logging back in.

Then delete your session entirely, log in, log out, log back in, and try that second token I had you fetch again.

Here's a simple patch which, from my initial tests, seems to fix the problem. It just sets the wsEditToken session data to an empty string on logout (similar to how wsUserID is set to 0). I don't know if this is the only session data that needs to be reset, or whether setting this on logout is the best place to put this.

Unicornisaurous added a comment to T122056: Old tokens are remaining valid within a new session.

This issue has confused me greatly - what good are tokens if the session cookie is whats's being looked at anyways in terms of identifying the user?

The point of the tokens is to prevent cross-site request forgery. You can read the linked article for details, but in short: If we only look at the session cookie, some evil third-party site could embed JavaScript to delete pages and take other admin actions via the API in their page, and then somehow trick wiki admins to visit that page. The CSRF token mechanism prevents that by requiring that the posted request data include the token which the evil third-party site has no way to obtain.

The secret value that's involved in constructing the token is stored in the user's session, since that's an easy and performant way of storing an arbitrary secret value. We could fix this specific bug by just adding the user name to the data used to construct the token, but I suspect we'll prefer to actually change the token secret when the new session is constructed.
