[EP-tech] CSRF Vulnerability in EPrints



Hi

 

??????????????? We?ve had a report from an independent security researcher (Jisc?s policy encourages reporting of issues) that EPrints suffers from a CSRF vulnerability.? The fix for this would be to add tokens to forms so that EPrints can validate that a submitted form was one that it generated.

 

??????????????? This is obviously a fairly complex problem to solve, with changes to multiple parts of EPrints, probably requiring a new field type, as well as the storing of tokens somewhere (perhaps a new dataset).? Has anyone taken a look at this?

 

Thanks
