 Thanks for the report @scaryonly but this is a false positive from your
 security scanning software. The value of this cookie is fixed and known. A
 session fixation vulnerability requires that the value is dynamic and
 associated with a user account, which this is not, therefore changing its
 value has no effect.

 Regards and thanks.
