Cisco Global Site Selector Cross-Site Request Forgery

Date Disclosed:

Date Patched:
Patch Not Yet Available


Affected Software:
Cisco Global Site Selector 3.2 and possibly earlier versions

Cisco Global Site Selector (GSS) contains a vulnerability whereby an attacker can specially craft HTTP requests to perform cross-site request forgery attacks. This can be used by remote attackers to arbitrarily send requests as an authenticated user to Cisco GSS.


Code Execution:

Cross-Site Request Forgery
Cisco GSS allows users to trigger actions via HTTP requests, while failing to validate that the user is logged in. This allows attackers to submit arbitrary requests and have them executed.

No mitigations currently available.
