CSRF attack

It’s been long since the last time I blogged but some things I took on were very time-consumptive, today we’ll talk about CSRF.

CSRF? What is that?

CSRF stands for cross-site request forgery, and it almost always leads to bad, nasty things. It can damage your bank account balance, it acts on your behalf on your website activities without your consent or you even knowing about it until it’s very late.

However, if a website has taken precautions about this type of attack such as CSRF one-time tokens, it’s renders the attack completely harmless because the web server will not accept the requests sent by 3rd parties.
