2. Vulnerability Description  
Medium 5.1 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P  
The only protection against CSRF is a referer check. This check can be disabled  
by a user with the rights to edit settings, thus making the application  
vulnerable to CSRF.  
A user may choose to disable referer checks, because when they are enabled,  
external links or direct entry/bookmarks to specific pages in the backend do  
not work, which severely limits the usability of the application  
3. Solution  
This issue has not been fixed by the vendor.
