CSRF Logout in vriteio/vrite


Reported on

Aug 18th 2023


Bad actor can send to victim link (ie. obfuscated) with payload /logout and if victim will use it - can change the state of user (logged in/logged out).

Proof of Concept

As logged in user open in new browser tab this site https://app.vrite.io/session/logout Go back to previous tab, refresh - see also logged out.

Payload example: Please click<a href="https://app.vrite.io/session/logout"> for a SWAG pack from us.

Proposed remediation: CSRF tokens; POST instead of GET for endpoint


Changing the state of user (logged in -> logged out).
