Client Variable Cookie CFGLOBALS Includes Session Ids

July 14, 2011

I was recently conducting a CFML security review for a client and realized that when you have client variables set to use Cookies, the session ID's (eg CFIDE and CFTOKEN) are included in the CFGLOBALS cookie.

This means that from a security prospective you need to protect the CFGLOBALS cookie just like you would the CFIDE and CFTOKEN cookies by setting the HTTPOnly flag and possibly the secure flag.
