We at MajorSecurity have discovered a vulnerability in Anantasoft Gazelle CMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to change the administrator's password by tricking a logged in administrator into visiting a malicious web site.
