Description


darkbunny91 has discovered a vulnerability in FlatNuke, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.

The vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. create new administrators or change administrators' passwords by enticing a logged-in administrator to visit a malicious site.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.6.1 and reported in version 2.6. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Do not browse untrusted websites or follow untrusted links while logged on to the application.
