Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
A Cross Side Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability was found in Codiad from 1.7.8. The request to download a plugin from the marketplace is only available to admin users and it isn’t CSRF protected. This might cause admins to make a vulnerable request without them knowing and result in an RCE.
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.
