Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF). CSRF protection can be bypassed by forging a request that contains the same value for both the X-XSRF-TOKEN header and the XSRF-TOKEN cookie value, as the check in randomTokenCsrfProtection only checks that the two values are equal and non-empty.
