Some vulnerabilities have been reported in cPanel, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The vulnerabilities are 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 a new database, add a new mysql user, add a new ftp user, or add a cron entry.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 11.18.3 build ID 21703. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 11.25.0 and enable the recommended Tweak Settings (see vendor's advisory for details).
