:Title: Insecure secure cookie in web.go
:Reporter: Blue Moon Consulting
:Fixed in: --
web.go is the simplest way to write web applications in the Go programming language. It's ideal for writing simple, performant backend web services.
web.go's secure cookie is modeled after Tornado. It suffers the same vulnerability that was documented in `BMSA 2010-01 <http://www.bluemoon.com.vn/advisories/bmsa201001.html>`_.
This vulnerability is rated at low severity due to situational exploiting conditions.
There is no workaround.
There is no fix at the moment.
Blue Moon Consulting adapts `RFPolicy v2.0 <http://www.wiretrip.net/rfp/policy.html>`_ in notifying vendors.
