Lab: CSRF with broken Referer validation

This lab's email change functionality is vulnerable to CSRF. It attempts to detect and block cross domain requests, but the detection mechanism can be bypassed.

To solve the lab, use your exploit server to host an HTML page that uses a CSRF attack to change the viewer's email address.

You have an account on the application that you can use to help design your attack. The credentials are: carlos / montoya.
