Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in admin/update_user in Hulihan Amethyst 0.1.5, and possibly earlier, allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that (1) change the administrative password or (2) change the site's configuration.
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.
