CodeIgniter CSRF Library

This library automatically protects all your forms against Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks, more commonly refered to as CSRF.

Just put the application/hooks/csrf.php in your hooks folder, and the application/config/hooks.php file in your hooks.php config file (or add the content in case you're already using a hook), and you're done!

The only caveat is that ajax POST requests will get rejected once the library is installed. To fix this you need to include the CSRF token in your requests. This token is injected into the <head> of your files automatically, so all you need to do is get it using any javascript framework and include it in the request. Check the two lines just befor the ending your <head> (</head>) to figure it out.
