Versions affected: 1.4.1 Not affected: <= 1.4.0 (*) Fixed versions: >= 1.5.0 (*) Versions <= 1.4.0 did not have any CSRF protection. So, while this vulnerability does not directly affect versions <= 1.4.0, downgrading to <= 1.4.0 is not a fix. ## Impact Because of the way that omniauth-facebook supports setting a per-request state parameter by storing it in the session, it is possible to circumvent the automatic CSRF protection. Therefore the CSRF added in 1.4.1 should be considered broken. If you are currently providing a custom state, you will need to store and retrieve this yourself (for example, by using the session store) to use 1.5.0. All users running an affected release should upgrade to 1.5.0. ## Releases The 1.5.0 releases is available at the normal locations. ## Workarounds None. ## Credits Egor Homakov (@homakov) regardsJosef Šimánek
