Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in the web interface on the Cisco Scientific Atlanta WebSTAR DPC2100R2 cable modem with firmware 2.0.2r1256-060303 allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that (1) reset the modem, (2) erase the firmware, (3) change the administrative password, (4) install modified firmware, or (5) change the access level, as demonstrated by a request to goform/_aslvl.
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.
