gpEasy CMS admin interface cross-site request forgery
|gpeasy-admin-interface-csrf (58214)||Medium Risk|
gpEasy CMS is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the administrative interface. By persuading an authenticated user to visit a malicious Web site, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request to create administrative accounts. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform cross-site scripting attacks, Web cache poisoning, and other malicious activities.
