Hi Adobe, Can you please re-open original ticket CF-4203170? Also, decoding the Base64 auth info produces 4 lines of text. Example: ----------- myUsername myAppName 1544913669249 B21A210A127191FE ----------- Question 1: What was the original value from which the last line (B21A210A127191FE) was derived? Question 2: Can you please provide a CF code snippet showing how to derive B21A210A127191FE from the original value? And, can this auth info format please be documented? Thanks!, -Aaron

Hi Rohit, Possibly the error is due to CF attempting to parse cookies having a different auth info format. The auth info format seems undocumented, so I'm unsure. One workaround is the recommended `loginstorage="session"`. Could you try that? Thanks!, -Aaron

Hi Rohit, Could you please share the code snippet with us, so that we can check if we can repro this intermitent issue? An isolated test case will help us debugging this issue faster Also, can you try Aaron/Pete's suggestion to check if that fixes your issue? Also, do share with us any setting that you have done wrt cookies in Application.cfc/Admin. Thanks, Kailash
