Carbon Black is an endpoint security solution that provides administrative functionality and other features via a dedicated web application. Multiple vulnerabilities in the Carbon Black web application could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. These vulnerabilities are due to insufficient or missing CSRF protections. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by persuading a user to follow a malicious link or visit an attacker-controlled website.
Dell SecureWorks researchers created a proof of concept video to illustrate the vulnerability, the exploit, and its outcome.
