Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) Presentation

Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). Session Riding. Client-Side Trojans. Confused Deputy. Web Trojans. Confused? Every year, for the past several years, the exact same Web attack is discovered, analyzed, and subsequently then renamed. Whatever it’s called, it all means the same thing: An attacker is forcing an unsuspecting user’s browser to compromise their own banking, eCommerce or other website accounts without the real user’s knowledge.

Attackers have begun to actively exploit CSRF vulnerabilities across the Web. Why now? Because it’s incredibly easy and the vast majority of websites are vulnerable to it. How do you stop an attack originating from a “real user,” who appears to be properly logged-in, and making a legitimate request – except that they did not intend to make the request?
