CSRF JUL 2021 – Cross-Site Request Forgery JUL 2021

Tailored WordPress Security Report

Be informed about the latest Cross-Site Request Forgery JUL 2021, identified and reported publicly. As these CSRF JUL 2021 vulnerabilities have a severe negative impact on any WordPress Security, consider our FREE security AUDIT.

An estimated 217.800+ active WordPress installations are susceptible to this attack type, considering only the publicly available numbers. The estimated number can increase by 5-10% with premium versions as they are private purchases.

Furthermore, the initial estimation can triple if we consider the already patched versions BUT NOT UPDATED by owners, as the vulnerability remains active within their domain. As these owners start changing their hosting provider (due to constant unexplained issues), they actively migrate these vulnerabilities behind protected areas, possibly exposing other clean WP to different attack types.

It is a mind-boggling 1225% increase compared to December 2020. We compare last month versus previous winter holiday season, which has the biggest shopping traffic and attack spike throughout the year.

BRIEF: Cross-Site Request Forgery JUL 2021 is a type of malicious exploit of a website where unauthorised commands are submitted from a user that the web application trusts. Cross-site request forgery is also known as one-click attack, session riding, CSRF, XSRF, Sea Surf, Session Riding, Cross-Site Reference Forgery, or Hostile Linking.

What is Cross-Site Request Forgery JUL 2021?

Cross-site request forgery (also known as CSRF) is a web security vulnerability that allows an attacker to induce users to perform actions that they do not intend to perform. It allows an attacker to partly circumvent the same-origin policy, which is designed to prevent different websites from interfering with each other. Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is an attack that forces an end user to execute unwanted actions on a web application in which they’re currently authenticated.

With a little help of social engineering (such as sending a link via email or chat), an attacker may trick the users of a web application into executing actions of the attacker’s choosing. If the victim is a normal user, a successful CSRF attack can force the user to perform state-changing requests like transferring funds, changing their email address, and so forth. If the victim is an administrative account, CSRF can compromise the entire web application.

What is the impact of a CSRF JUL 2021 attack?

In a successful CSRF attack, the attacker causes the victim user to act unintentionally. Example: this might be to change the email address on their account, to change their password, or to make a funds transfer. Depending on the nature of the action, the attacker might be able to gain full control over the user’s account. If the compromised user has a privileged role within the application, then the attacker might be able to take full control of all the application’s data and functionality.
