Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Harmoni, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) A 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 accounts and grant privileges, by enticing a logged-in administrator to visit a malicious web page, or to e.g. delete content, by enticing a logged-in user to visit a malicious web page.
2) A vulnerability is caused due to improper access restriction. This can be exploited to bypass the authentication mechanism and display usernames and asset (content) IDs.
The vulnerabilities are reported in all versions prior to 1.6.0.
Solution: Update to version 1.6.0.
Provided and/or discovered by: 1) The vendor credits Josh Abraham, Rapid7.
