Security assessment outcome - Multiple form submission- Insufficient Anti automation

During assessment it was observed that the application does not have an Csrf token for post form submission request. Insufficient Anti-automation occurs when a web application permits an attacker to automate a process that was originally designed to be performed only in a manual fashion, i.e. by a human web user.

An attacker can submit multiple forms resulting in dos/ddos attacks on the application.

We understand that the webui is an API. However it was observed that the user is able to submit the junk data via POST request and multiple Topics were created. It is recommended to implement a token to put restriction on POST based request

    The old case was closed due to inactivity, I have created TS015628355 for the same again. Could you please arrange to see if there was any further development done to fix this said security observation.

    Hi Murali, I've been chatting with the support team who have been looking at case TS011584679: Can you follow this up with them please as they've been doing the technical investigation?

    Also moving this to Event Streams as this appears to be the area under discussion

    Thanks for submitting this - can you give us some more details here please as to which capability this refers to please?

    Also examples of which POST requests you're using would be useful for us to look at.

    Is there a particular tool or test technique that was used to discover this?
