Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is a security vulnerability that allows a cyber threat actor to perform actions on behalf of the user without their knowledge or consent. The CSRF attack occurs when the user clicks on a malicious link or visits a malicious website. This action makes the user’s browser send requests to legitimate websites where the user is logged in. These requests are generally actions such as deleting data, making purchases, changing passwords, sending messages, and so on. As the request comes from the user’s browser, it is considered legitimate, allowing the cybercriminals to perform unauthorized actions.
