Vulnerability

Description

Repeated GET requests: Send a different cookie with each request, followed by a standard request with all cookies to stabilize the session. Compare the responses to the original baseline GET request to identify areas where cookie-based authentication or attributes may not be properly enforced. This can expose vulnerabilities in session management and authentication.

Recommendation

Implement proper cookie handling and validation mechanisms to ensure consistent and secure authentication.
