# Exploit Title: ClickHeat <1.1.4 Change Admin Password CSRF
# Google Dork: allinurl:/clickheat/
# Date: 11-06-2015
# Exploit Author: David Shanahan (@CyberpunkSec)
# Contact: https://twitter.com/CyberpunkSec

# Software Link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/clickheat/files/clickheat/
# Version: 1.14
# Tested on: Windows

---- Description ----

ClickHeat is vulnerable to a CSRF attack because it does not implement a
CSRF token when updating the config file.  If an authenticated admin is
tricked into opening this malicious URL, the form will be submitted which
changes the administrator password to the one the attacker has specified.

---- CSRF PoC ----

Set the value of "adminLogin" to the administrators username, then set the
value of "adminPass" to a md5 hash of the password you want. (you may also
need to change the "logPath" & "cachePath")

---- Solution ----

The ClickHeat project seems to be dead, as it has not been updated since
late 2011.  Due to this, I truly doubt a patch will be issued so I would
recommend removing this product from your website.
