Vulnerability Details:
=====================

PHP Server Monitor uses level 20 for basic user and level 10 for Admins these are stored in Database. Basic users can elevate thier privileges to that of Administrator

CSRF attack which will grant the user admin access. This problem is due to no CSRF protection mechanism in place.
