SysAid Cross-Site Request Forgery

Friday, 12 October 2007

Vendor: Ilient

nights shadow has discovered a vulnerability in SysAid, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.

The vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. change the administrator password by enticing a logged-in administrator to visit a malicious site.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.5.03 and reported in version 4.5.04. Other versions may also be affected.

Do not browse untrusted websites or follow untrusted links while logged on to the application.
