IssueCustomer using  AAOP SP2 and unable to log into back office tools. Below error logs seen:-
2015-04-30 07:38:54,463 WARN [com.passmarksecurity.tools.auth.client.AuthServletFilter] - <ILLEGAL CHARACTERS FOUND IN THE POST DATA for special param. Param=password, Value=Her7man&>
2015-04-30 07:38:54,724 ERROR [com.passmarksecurity.tools.auth.client.AuthServletFilter] - <Error with servlet forward to error page>
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: javax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.StackOverflowError
    at org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServletWrapper.handleJspException(JspServletWrapper.java:500)
    at org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServletWrapper.service(JspServletWrapper.java:410)
CauseLooking into the logs, it seems they are using a password with a character which is not allowed for the field.
Below logs shows password- Her7man& is used. It seems the "&" character is not allowed. 
<ILLEGAL CHARACTERS FOUND IN THE POST DATA for special param. Param=password, Value=Her7man&>
ResolutionThe resolution is to change the password and use a value with acceptable characters.
Please run the below query. It will reset the password for role admin and the new password will be "admin"
UPDATE USERS SET COUNT_TRIES = 0, LOCKED_AT_DATE = NULL, LOCKED_BY = NULL, SALT_VALUE = NULL, PASSWORD = 'D033E22AE348AEB5660FC2140AEC35850C4DA997' WHERE (NAME = 'admin');
After that you can log into accessmanagement portal and reset the password for admin as per your choice.
