RESTClient v1.8.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2015-03-24 // almost 5 years ago
    • 🔒 Security: implement standards compliant cookie handling by adding a dependency on http-cookie. This breaks compatibility, but was necessary to address a session fixation / cookie disclosure vulnerability. (#369 / CVE-2015-1820)

    Previously, any Set-Cookie headers found in an HTTP 30x response would be sent to the redirection target, regardless of domain. Responses now expose a cookie jar and respect standards compliant domain / path flags in Set-Cookie headers.
