OpenCA certificate cross-site request forgery
|openca-certificate-csrf (40476)||Medium Risk|
OpenCA 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 and open a malicious image link, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request to cause the victim to issue certificates 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.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
