Pull Requests

Rack versions below v2.0.8 are susceptible to a timing attack, wherein a session ID can be stolen by inferring how long it takes for the server to validate it. To address this, Rack has shipped a new version that introduces private and public session IDs so that these types of attacks can be prevented. This is mostly applicable to those who store their sessions in a database (such as Redis), because it is then possible for someone to hijack another user's session. Workarea does not store sessions in a shared database out-of-the-box, so it is not inherently vulnerable to such an attack, but had to make a change since it uses the session ID in the background for user activity reporting. This change ensures Workarea will be compatible with all future versions of Rack 2.0.
