Opened: Nov 05, 2018

Severity: 3-Major


Multiple virtual servers are each using different cookie names for cookies 72, 74, and 76. This occurred because these cookie names are dependent on virtual server properties.


Anti-Bot Mobile SDK is not able to connect to multiple virtual servers using the same cookie.


-- Multiple subdomains are configured to resolve to different virtual servers with different ASM policies. -- Anti-Bot Mobile SDK attempts to connect to these virtual servers.



Fix Information

The relevant cookie names were changed. The format TS00000000_7x (prefix/suffix may change according to configuration) is now used for cookies 72, 74, and 76, which results in identical cookie names for all configured virtual servers. This will allow Anti-Bot Mobile SDK to connect to multiple virtual servers using the same cookie.
