A recent product security scanning exercise identified that a cross-site request forgery vulnerability exists within REST in IBM Cúram Social Program Management. The issue relates to the checking of the HTTP referrer header for GET requests on the server side, which should be checked in a similar way to all other requests.
Note: If you are using the REST API, you are vulnerable to cross-site request forgery.
DESCRIPTION: IBM Curam Social Program Management is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery which could allow an attacker to execute malicious and unauthorized actions transmitted from a user that the website trusts.
