You should use protection!

This gem protects against typical web attacks. Should work for all Rack apps, including Rails.

Usage

Use all protections you probably want to use:

# config.ru
require 'rack/protection'
use Rack::Protection
run MyApp

Skip a single protection middleware:

# config.ru
require 'rack/protection'

run MyApp

Use a single protection middleware:

# config.ru
require 'rack/protection'
use Rack::Protection::AuthenticityToken
run MyApp
