cPanel HTTP requests cross-site request forgery
|cpanel-http-csrf (42114)||Medium Risk|
cPanel is vulnerable to multiple cross-site request forgeries, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. By persuading an authenticated victim with administrative privileges to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could send a malformed HTTP request to create a new database, add a new mysql or ftp user, add a cron entry, or perform other malicious activities such as cross-site scripting attacks or Web cache poisoning.
No remedy available as of August 1, 2014.
