Bug Description

My google eMAIL account is managed by my organisation. They recently required everyone to validate their sign-ons (sign-ins) via a central authentication server (CAS) using the 2FA from DUO. When attempting to connect using goa, I am now re-directed to my organisation's CAS and when the DUO login page refreshes, it states that login could not proceed because I am using a SAFARI browser that is more than one year out of date. Of course, I'm not using SAFARI, but rather goa. Is there a way to deed the proper header (a more recent version of SAFARI in goa) to be able to complete 2FA with DUO?

Excellent question. If we lie about the version of Safari it might cause other tools to emit HTML etc that it can't parse.

Wait a second - is goa based on Safari code? Is that why it's being shut-out from DUO? And, I'm not suggesting that anyone lie - I suspect that DUO is misreading goa as Safari.
