A vulnerability in the web framework code of Cisco Integrated Management Controller could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to perform a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient CSRF protections. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing the user of the affected system to follow a malicious link or visit an attacker-controlled website.

Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability in a security notice; however, software updates are not available.

Cisco indicates through the CVSS score that functional exploit code exists; however, the code is not known to be publicly available.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must be on the same broadcast or collision domain as the targeted device. This access requirement decreases the likelihood of a successful exploit.
