CVE-2023-46733: Possible session fixation

Affected versions

Symfony versions >=5.4.21, <5.4.31, and >= 6.2.7, < 6.3.8 of the Symfony
Security HTTP component are affected by this security issue.

The issue has been fixed in Symfony 5.4.31, 6.3.8.


SessionStrategyListener does not always migrate the session after a
successful login. It only migrate the session when the logged-in user identifier
changes. In some use cases, the user identifier doesn’t change between the
verification phase and the successful login, while the token itself changes from
one type (partially-authenticated) to another (fully-authenticated). When this
happens, the session id should be regenerated to prevent possible session


Symfony now checks the type of the token in addition to the user identifier
before deciding whether the session id should be regenerated.

The patch for this issue is available here for branch 5.4.


We would like to thank Robert Meijers for reporting the issue and providing the fix.
