Not necessarily, consider the case in which an attacker sends a malicious URL (see code snippet)
for the administrator, and when he access the admin page via this URL, your session can be
stolen.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2-4739
>             Project: Axis2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.5.1, 1.5, 1.4.1
>         Environment: Tested on Linux Ubuntu & Debian. Other distributions may be
vulnerable.
>            Reporter: Tiago Ferreira Barbosa
>            Priority: Critical
>
> We have found a Session Fixation Vulnerability in administrative interface of Apache
Axis2. When successfully exploited, this vulnerability allows to fixate a session Cookie in
the browser of the victim, this way it's possible to perform session hijacking attacks.
> The vulnerability was found in the administrative interface of Axis2. By default, it
is accessible at the path /axis2/axis2-admin. To exploit this flaw, we used a Cross Site Script
in existing Axis2 (http://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/12721/).
> Code Snippet:
> http://example:8080/axis2/axis2-admin/engagingglobally?submit=%2bEngage 2b&modules=<script>document.cookie="JSESSIONID=C958373831119190D2DC7838BA177980.tomcat1;

> Path=/axis2";document.location="http://example:8080/axis2/axis2-admin/"</script>
> The above code when run on the victim's browser, fixates the session cookie sent by the
attacker to it.
> To protect against session fixation, the HTTP session must be invalidated and recreated
on login, giving the user a new session id.
