Pro Chat Rooms is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the sendData.php script. By persuading an authenticated user to visit a malicious Web site, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request using the avatar parameter to send messages to another user and perform other arbitrary tasks. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform cross-site scripting attacks, Web cache poisoning, and other malicious activities.
