Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) hides in the shadow of two more well-known web vulnerabilities: Cross-site scripting and SQL injection. Despite its occlusion, statistics clearly show that CSRF attacks are on the increase. The leading secure cloud hosting company Firehost rated CSRF as the most frequent attack in 2011 and the second most frequent attack in the third quarter of 2012. Termed “the sleeping giant” back in 2007, the giant has definitely woken up.
 
  
CSRF attacks are remarkably easy to mount and their potential impact is limited only by the targeted site itself. All the major web sites like Gmail, Amazon and Facebook had their brush with CSRF in the past. CSRF is a clear and present threat that is better taken seriously.
