Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered vulnerability in ocPortal which could be exploited to perform CSRF attacks.

1) Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) ocPortal

Successful exploitation might result in complete compromise of the application.

Exploitation example:
