Contribution by Ted on the mailing list:
probably it would make sense to ask for a detailed step-by-step procedure on how to reproduce this problem. The current description is quite vague so it's hard to find the place to look for in detail (or does anyone already know?).
I strongly assume that CSRF refers to Cross-Site-Request-Forgery, so probably a specifically prepared web page is needed to exploit this vulnerability. If such a web page could be provided it would greatly help in analysis.
Answer on Facebook / asking for more information:
Hello Moncef, I talked with one of our ingeneers. He said, it would make sense to send us a detailed step-by-step procedure on how to reproduce this problem. (you may write in English or French, just what is better for you.) The current description is or him quite vague so it's hard to find the place to look for in detail.
He strongly assume that CSRF refers to Cross-Site-Request-Forgery - is he right? So probably a specifically prepared web page is needed to exploit this vulnerability. If such a web page could be provided it would greatly help in analysis.
