Description Robb Gatica 2023-11-09 23:49:56 UTC
An issue discovered in Axios 1.5.1 inadvertently reveals the confidential XSRF-TOKEN stored in cookies by including it in the HTTP header X-XSRF-TOKEN for every request made to any host allowing attackers to view sensitive information.

Is there a way to opt out of these for some packages? I keep getting false positives on website files that are never shipped as part of the binary RPMs
