AFAIU SameSite=Lax blocks the external POST vector.


Strict may cause confusion like not being logged when clicking on that
phppgadmin link from the corporate wiki, but then being logged again
when refreshing the page. Another point of attention is if phppgadmin is
accessed through some SSO.

SameSite looks like a good mitigation though.
