There is an vulnerability in rails-ujs that allows attackers to send CSRF tokens to wrong domains.
Versions Affected: rails <= 6.0.3 Not affected: Applications which don’t use rails-ujs. Fixed Versions: rails >= 126.96.36.199, rails >= 188.8.131.52
This is a regression of CVE-2015-1840.
In the scenario where an attacker might be able to control the href attribute of an anchor tag or the action attribute of a form tag that will trigger a POST action, the attacker can set the href or action to a cross-origin URL, and the CSRF token will be sent.

For example, code like this:
to code like this:
link_to filtered_params def filtered_params # Filter just the parameters that you trust end
