A vulnerability has been discovered in UseBB, 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 proper validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. manipulate administrator's profile data when a logged-in administrator visits a specially crafted web page.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.0.11. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.0.12.
