What is a CSRF vulnerability?

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) is an attack that tricks a user into performing an unwanted action on a web application in which the malicious user does not have the same privileges. This happens when the malicious user sends a covert request to perform an unauthorized action on behalf of the victim, typically without the victim's knowledge and consent
This vulnerability is caused by missing input validation, with attackers being able to exploit it to gain access to confidential data or perform actions on behalf of other users.
