SirGod has discovered a vulnerability in BabbleBoard, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform certain administrative tasks (e.g. delete categories and user groups, and ban and delete users) by tricking a user with the necessary privileges to perform these tasks into visiting a malicious web site.
This vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.6. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not visit untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being logged in to the application.
