Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in ownCloud before 4.0.12 and 4.5.x before 4.5.7 allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of users for requests that (1) change the timezone for the user via the lat and lng parameters to apps/calendar/ajax/settings/guesstimezone.php, (2) disable or enable the automatic timezone detection via the timezonedetection parameter to apps/calendar/ajax/settings/timezonedetection.php, (3) import user accounts via the admin_export parameter to apps/admin_migrate/settings.php, (4) overwrite user files via the operation parameter to apps/user_migrate/ajax/export.php, or (5) change the authentication server URL via unspecified vectors to apps/user_ldap/settings.php.
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.
