#26094 closed Bug (fixed)

CSRF fails behind proxy (settings.USE_X_FORWARDED_PORT=True)

Reported by: Jose M Herrero Owned by: nobody
Component: CSRF Version: 1.9
Severity: Release blocker Keywords: csrf

Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

I use gunicorn behind nginx and a load balancer, CSRF fails since 1.9 (the code was introduced here

The problem is that if settings.CSRF_COOKIE_DOMAIN is defined it uses request.METASERVER_PORT to check that the port is the same and fails behind a proxy.

Using request method get_port() takes is into account and I find that is more correct that useing the header directly.

Patch is on:
