- Detect critical Cross-Site Request Forgery vulnerabilities and risks
- Embed it into your dev process
- Set it up in minutes, and start scanning for CSRF or XSRF vulnerabilities
- Automated online SaaS CSRF testing tool
CSRF scanner features
The automated scanner makes it easy to detect cross-site request forgery vulnerabilities. All you need to do is have the tool perform a fully comprehensive test in your web applications. It uses the same Black Box pentesting approach usually performed by human pentesters, which is faster and more cost-effective.
Create and verify your scan target.
Configure the credentials for the system and the application.
Create a webhook and start a scan via the CI Integration.
Integrate a chat notification system (Slack, Mattermost, Hangouts, and many more.)
Download the report
Get reports with remediation guidance, risk assessments, and solutions for every vulnerability discovered.
CSRF vulnerability scanner benefits
- Get fully detailed reports in PDF, JSON/XML, and CSV formats that you can easily share with colleagues, customers, and supervisors.
- Continuously test for Cross-Site Scripting and protect your users and data from CSRF attacks while greatly reducing the risk of being hacked.
- Test your third-party web applications and assess their cybersecurity based on the results.
- Integrating the Vulnerability Scanner into your workflow and development pipeline has never been easier.
Ample CSRF vulnerability reports
With CSRF Scanner, you can detect cross-site request forgery vulnerabilities directly in all web applications and receive our detailed scan report. It shows you the tests performed, identifications, and classifications and provides recommendations on fixing the threats. This saves your employees hours of manual work and your company valuable financial resources.
Thorough Vulnerability Findings
The report includes a fully comprehensive vulnerability overview, including the severity of the threats uncovered in each case and a checklist of the attack vectors exposed and the status of the scanners run.
Each vulnerability found includes a threat assessment, an explanation, and notes on how to fix the problem.
For easy identification of the already eliminated or noted issues.
More reasons for continuous CSRF testing
Perform regular black box pentests on your web assets and spend less on infrequent manual penetration tests.
Cybersecurity Risk Reduction
Benchmark your next release against OWASP Top 10 and other known vulnerabilities.
Match vulnerability scanning to your agile dev cycle.
Scan every new release before deployment and ensure compliance with regulations and standards (HIPAA, GDPR, ISO, and many more).
Faster Vulnerability Detection
Detect and mitigate vulnerabilities quicker by scanning your web assets regularly.
Integrated Dev Pipeline
Integrate vulnerability scanning into your dev process and environment and shift security left.
What is CSRF?
CSRF is also referred to as XSRF, Cross-Site Reference Forgery, Hostile Linking, and many more. In this attack, an attacker can execute requests in an application while a user is currently logged in there. In this approach, the attacker uses different websites or elements to send requests within an application but from outside the application. Therefore, the terms “cross-site” or “cross-origin” are used to describe this cybersecurity vulnerability.
There are two types of CSRF attacks:
- Stored CSRF attack
- Login CSRF attack
A CSRF sends an HTTP request when a user opens a website with malicious code to achieve its goal. This code is embedded so that the user does not need to perform further actions. Get more information about how to prevent CSRF attacks, their impact, and how they work.
What is a CSRF vulnerability scanner?
All online businesses need to use an automated vulnerability scanner in today’s age. For this reason, we have developed an efficient and simple solution. Additional to our standard product helpful tools, such as our CSRF scanner, have been developed. This ensures the security of your web applications while saving essential resources like time and budget.
Our vulnerability scanner offers you “Cybersecurity Made Easy”:
- Your developers can finally focus on what’s important! Our vulnerability scanner reduces the time for test setups and offers remediation advice in the reports. Thanks to this, developers save up to 100 hours per year.
- Save an average of 40% on your pentesting budget and enable continuous visibility into your security posture while reducing your risks.
Note: You must own and have the permissions to set the CSRF scanner. The XSRF tool can generate different HTTP Requests that can be considered attacks (even if they are completely inoffensive) so consider that you need the authorization to run this scanner.
Why should I start a CSRF vulnerability test?
How high the impact of a cross-site request forgery attack depends on the application permissions of the targeted person.
A successfully executed CSRF attack usually results in status changes, such as the password or email address. It can also lead to money transfers to other accounts or purchases using the user’s credentials.
However, it is not an average user but has higher privileges, such as administrator rights. In that case, a successfully executed CSRF attack can cause the system to be compromised entirely, as this type of account can submit requests for another order.
Therefore, it is essential to check your web applications for CSRF. Testing will bring you one step closer to detecting and preventing the threat and stopping hackers from accessing your system. This way, you can better protect customer data, such as passwords, credit cards, and email information.
How do I run a CSRF test website?
- We offer the fastest setup on the market. Check your web apps for CSRF vulnerabilities with just one click. Our Quick Security Audit tests your web applications in less than 2 minutes (depending on the size), and you get a detailed report with the found risks, including their severity level.
- Outstanding support helps you in case of difficulties. We verify the CSRF test you have performed to ensure that you correctly enabled the vulnerability tool. Our cyber security experts are here to help you use our tool, and you can contact us whenever you need support.
- We offer more than just CSRF vulnerability scans – test for all top 10 OWASP vulnerabilities as well. You will receive detailed information about all attacks your web applications are exposed to, including the risk assessment of each threat.
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
How to prevent Cross-Site Request Forgery Attacks?
Using a CSRF token is the most common mitigation technique for CSRF attacks. But, it’s also possible to use these tokens due to omissions in the procedure. In any case, the token should always be validated.
What is a CSRF token?
CSRF tokens (also known as synchronizer tokens or anti-CSRF tokens)are session tokens that represent unpredictable and unique values generated by the application and sent to the client. To defend against a CSRF attack, these tokens need to be implemented correctly, along with several other mitigation techniques.
What is XSRF?
XSRF is the same for CSRF, also called session riding, hostile linking, or “sea surf.” XSRF works by an attacker gaining access to a victim’s browser – typically through a malicious link. That access is then used to make a malicious request to any application with a currently active session in which the user is authenticated.
