Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A number of unused delete routes are present in CloudForms which can be accessed via GET requests instead of just POST requests. This could allow an attacker to bypass the protect_from_forgery XSRF protection causing the routes to be used. This attack would require additional cross-site scripting or similar attacks in order to execute.

Description Kurt Seifried 2017-03-14 17:22:44 UTC
Martin Povolny of Red Hat reports:

Several routes in the CloudForms app contained actions that can be performed via GET request instead of POST request. This could result in a failure to check the protect_from_forgery token, so these actions may be vulnerable to XSRF.
