GitLab Vulns Could Lead to Session Hijacking – Infosecurity Magazine

During a recent pen test of GitLab, Imperva researchers were surprised to come across a vulnerability that leaves users exposed to session hijacking attacks.

The vulnerability stems from the type of session tokens used by GitLab. According to Imperva, the tokens are troublesome because: They are short, making them susceptible to brute-force attacks; they are persistent, meaning they never expire; and they lack role-based access control, meaning a simple copy/paste of the token grants access to every actionable item on the GitLab platform, eg, user dashboards, account information, individual projects and website code.
