Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cryptographic Issues. randomBytes in xsrf.go uses math.rand to generate CSRF tokens. This is unsafe/insecure, and because it is seeded with time.UnixNano, generates predictable results that would allow an attacker to bypass CSRF protection.
