Lab: CSRF vulnerability with no defenses
This lab's email change functionality is vulnerable to CSRF.
To solve the lab, craft some HTML that uses a CSRF attack to change the viewer's email address and upload it to your exploit server.
You can log in to your own account using the following credentials:
- With your browser proxying traffic through Burp Suite, log in to your account, submit the "Update email" form, and find the resulting request in your Proxy history.
If you're using Burp Suite Professional, right-click on the request, and from the context menu select Engagement tools / Generate CSRF PoC. Enable the option to include an auto-submit script and click "Regenerate".
Alternatively, if you're using Burp Suite Community Edition, use the following HTML template and fill in the request's method, URL, and body parameters. You can get the request URL by right-clicking and selecting "Copy URL".
<form method="$method" action="$url">
<input type="hidden" name="$param1name" value="$param1value">
- Go to the exploit server, paste your exploit HTML into the "Body" section, and click "Store".
- To verify if the exploit will work, try it on yourself by clicking "View exploit" and checking the resulting HTTP request and response.
