A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Emergency Responder could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack and perform arbitrary actions on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient CSRF protections for the web-based management interface of an affected device.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to follow a crafted link.

A successful exploit could allow the attacker to perform arbitrary actions on a targeted device via a web browser and with the privileges of the user.

More information about CSRF is in Understanding Cross-Site Request Forgery Threat Vectors.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
