Russ McRee has reported a vulnerability in Linksys WRT160N, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The administrative web interface allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform administrative actions when a logged in administrator is tricked into visiting a malicious web page.
The vulnerability is reported in firmware version 1.02.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not browse untrusted web sites while being logged in to the administrative web interface.
