BUEditor module for Drupal cross-site request forgery
|drupal-bueditor-csrf (39614)||Medium Risk|
The BUEditor module for Drupal is vulnerable to a cross-site request forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could send a malformed HTTP request to cause the victim to delete custom editor interfaces and possibly perform other arbitrary tasks. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform cross-site scripting attacks, Web cache poisoning and other malicious activities.
