Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities on the Cisco Linksys WAG54GS Wireless-G ADSL Gateway with 1.01.03 and earlier firmware allow remote attackers to perform actions as administrators via an arbitrary valid request to an administrative URI, as demonstrated by (1) a Restore Factory Defaults action using the mtenRestore parameter to setup.cgi and (2) creation of a user account using the sysname parameter to setup.cgi.
CWE-352 - Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is a vulnerability that allows an attacker to make arbitrary requests in an authenticated vulnerable web application and disrupt the integrity of the victim’s session. The impact of a successful CSRF attack may range from minor to severe, depending upon the capabilities exposed by the vulnerable application and privileges of the user. An attacker may force the user to perform state-changing requests like transferring funds, changing their email address or password etc. However, if an administrative level account is affected, it may compromise the whole web application and associated sensitive data.
