This issue was fixed and the versions mentioned above were never even vulnerable! Very unprecise issue!

This vulnerability was mentioned on the Contao forum by the lead developer: "The reported issue never really was an issue. To exploit the "vulnerability", the malicious website would have to know the domain name of your Contao installation, which is very unlikely!

Second of all, the request token system prevents this kind of attack, so the report can be considered fixed (and outdated)."
