> It is possible for an attacker to directly steal user session information by 
> having a user visit or load a URL using Knox, as cookies are forwarded in the 
> header on the outbound request. This behavior doesn't seem to serve any 
> particular function either, as the endpoint Knox tries to contact shouldn't 
> need any authentication by Knox. We suggest that user-Knox cookies should be 
> omitted from the outbound request.
