Description

Appweb reported an issue related to session cookies persisting in the browser. This was originally interpreted by OSVDB to mean that an attacker could possibly leverage the persistent session credentials increasing the chance of a hijacking attack. Since then, the vendor has clarified that the fix was not security related. As such, this is an invalid issue.
