A cross site request forgery vulnerability has been discovered in the official EditMe content managament system.
The vulnerability allows to perform malicious client-side web-application requests to execute non-protected functions
with own web context.
In the absence of security token, an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the administrators browser to gain
unauthorized access to the administrator access privileges.
Proof of Concept:
Cross site request forgery web vulnerability can be exploited by malicious web application without privileged user account and without user interaction.
To demonstrate safety or reproduce csrf web vulnerability information and follow the steps below to continue provided.
