I’m back!

Django versions 1.4 – 1.7 offer a cookie-based session storage option
(not the default this time) that is afflicted by the same issue I
posted about previously concerning Ruby on Rails:

If you obtain a user’s cookie, even if they log out, you can still log
in as them.

The short write-up is here, if needed:
