Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in the Pods plugin before 2.5 for WordPress allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that (1) conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via the toggled parameter in a toggle action in the pods-components page to wp-admin/admin.php, (2) delete a pod in a delete action in the pods page to wp-admin/admin.php, (3) reset pod settings and data via the pods_reset parameter in the pod-settings page to wp-admin/admin.php, (4) deactivate and reset pod data via the pods_reset_deactivate parameter in the pod-settings page to wp-admin/admin.php, (5) delete the admin role via the id parameter in a delete action in the pods-component-roles-and-capabilities page to wp-admin/admin.php, or (6) enable "roles and capabilities" in a toggle action in the pods-components page to wp-admin/admin.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.
