Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-06-04 04:17:22 EDT
A session fixation flaw was found in the way Symfony, an open-source PHP web applications development framework, performed removal of user credential, adding several user credentials at once and 'user authenticated' settings change by regenerating session ID. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL, that when visited by a valid Symfony application user (victim) could lead to unauthorized access to the victim's user account.
