Sow Ching Shiong has discovered a vulnerability in HP System Management Homepage, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. create an arbitrary user with administrative privileges if a logged-in administrative user visits a malicious web site.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 18.104.22.168. Other versions may also be affected.
