Cross-Site Request Forgery

In a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack, an untrusted application can cause a user's browser to submit requests or perform actions on the user's behalf.

Read more about CSRF here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Cross-Site_Request_Forgery_(CSRF)

This type of CSRF is flagged by sobelow when state-changing routes share an action with GET-based routes. For example:

get "/users", UserController, :new
post "/users", UserController, :new

In this instance, it may be possible to trigger the POST functionality with a GET request and query parameters.

CSRF checks can be ignored with the following command:

$ mix sobelow -i Config.CSRFRoute
