Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in Collabtive 0.4.8 allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that (1) submit or edit a new project, or (2) upload files to a project, or (3) attach files to messages via unknown vectors. NOTE: these issues can be leveraged with other vulnerabilities to create remote attack vectors that do not require authentication.
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.
