Description Kurt Seifried 2013-01-18 04:10:27 UTC
Jeremy Choi (jechoi@redhat.com) of Red Hat reports:

Description of problem:

Since the web console is using 'Basic authentication' and the REST API has no 
CSRF attack protection mechanism, the credential, the Authorization: header, 
can be sent when requesting the REST API via web browser. As a result, while 
users are authenticated malicious links or scripts provided by attackers can 
cause unwanted action.
