A cross-site request forgery flaw has been discovered in etcd. A remote attacker could set up a malicious website that execute POST requests to an etcd server to modify or add a key.
A cross-site request forgery flaw was found in etcd 3.3.1 and earlier. An attacker can set up a website that tries to send a POST request to the etcd server and modify a key. Adding a key is done with PUT so it is theoretically safe (can't PUT from an HTML form or such) but POST allows creating in-order keys that an attacker can send.
Created etcd tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1552720]
If etcd supports the new v3 API, the attacker can run more operations through POST, as described in the reference blog post.
Configure and enable authentication on the etcd server.
