My current login page if the login is incorrect the page refreshes and says that the username/pass is incorrect.  I want to do this so that it doesn't refresh the page.

<?php
  define("_VALID_PHP", true);
  require_once("init.php");
  
  if ($user->logged_in)
      redirect_to("/client/dashboard");
	  
	  
  if (isset($_POST['doLogin']))
      : $result = $user->login($_POST['username'], $_POST['password']);
  
  /* Login Successful */
  if ($result)
      : redirect_to("/client/dashboard");
  endif;
  endif;
?>
<?php include("header.php");?>
<div id="msgholder-alt"><?php print $core->showMsg;?></div>
    <div class="box">
      <form action="" method="post" id="login_form" name="login_form">
        <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" class="display">
          <tr>
            <th width="200"><strong>Username:</strong></th>
            <td><input name="username" type="text" size="45" maxlength="20" class="inputbox" /></td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <th><strong>Password:</strong></th>
            <td><input name="password" type="password" size="45" maxlength="20" class="inputbox" /></td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td><input name="submit" value="Login Now" type="submit" class="button"/></td>
          </tr>
        </table>
        <input name="doLogin" type="hidden" value="1" />
      </form>
    </div>

Put this in the head section of your page  :

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
    $("#logindropdown img").click(function() {
          var u = $("#logindropdown input[name='username']").val();
          var p = $("#logindropdown input[name='password']").val();
          $.post("simple_login_to_attack.php", {username:u, password:p}, function(result) {
              if(result=="ok") location.href = "/client/dashboard";
              else alert("bad login/password");
          });
    })
})
</script>

Open in new window


with simple_login_to_attack.php:
<?php
  define("_VALID_PHP", true);
  require_once("init.php");
  if ($user->logged_in) die("ok");
  $result = $user->login($_POST['username'], $_POST['password']);
  if ($result) die("ok");
  die("fail");
?>
