comment Is it possible to do HTTP header injection if CR/LF are stripped?
@immibis yeah \n works alone for all servers/clients in common use. More broadly every CRLF delimited protocol will usually just accept a LF as a delimiter. Don't take my word for it, load up netcat and try it for yourself.

comment Are phone calls on a GSM network encrypted?
@Andreas Florath Yes, and the A5/1 stream cipher and its key scheduling is a total joke. GSM is one of the most obvious backdoors (well lit frontdoor?) that anyone can access for under $1,000.

comment Why refresh CSRF token per form request?
@Domi It depends how they got the token in the first place. If it with XSS, or over an insecure channel, the a rolling token wouldn't matter.

comment Can webcams be turned on without the indicator light?
@user6373 that is one way of accomplishing the same task, it depends on the device. But, at the end of the day, the lights on the device is controlled by the firmware.

comment Why doesn't the same origin policy block get requests that contain arguments?
It depends on the XHR. But yes for the purposes of CSRF, you should assume that the client can send arbitrary requests, and that the response may be sent by the server, but not visible to the attacker.
