CWE ID 352


CVE-2021-45785 is a vulnerability found in TruDesk Help Desk/Ticketing Solution v1.1.11. This vulnerability allows for a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack that could potentially result in a Denial of Service (DoS) attack by restarting the server. To carry out the attack, the attacker needs to create a webpage that performs a GET request to the /api/v1/admin/restart endpoint. The victim, who must have sufficient privileges, would then visit the page and trigger the server restart. It is important to note that the attacker must know the full URL of TruDesk in order to craft the webpage correctly. The potential danger lies in the ability to disrupt or disable TruDesk services, impacting an organization's help desk and ticketing system.
