Yii2 vulnerability to "BREACH" attacks? #1634

I just read about a new type of attack, introduced at this year's Black Hat conference:

It is not application-specific: apparently the attack works on any website using HTTP compression (which is default in Apache as far as I know), user data being returned in the HTTP response body and a CSRF token being served.

To what extend would a vanilla Yii2 setup on a LAMP machine with default settings be vulnerable?
