Simply so, what is CSRF example?
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF or XSRF) is another example of how the security industry is unmatched in its ability to come up with scary names. A CSRF vulnerability allows an attacker to force a logged-in user to perform an important action without their consent or knowledge.
Subsequently, question is, what is the use of CSRF token? CSRF token is tied to a non-session cookie The attacker can log in to the application using their own account, obtain a valid token and associated cookie, leverage the cookie-setting behavior to place their cookie into the victim's browser, and feed their token to the victim in their CSRF attack.
Secondly, how does CSRF attack work?
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is an attack that forces an end user to execute unwanted actions on a web application in which they're currently authenticated. CSRF attacks specifically target state-changing requests, not theft of data, since the attacker has no way to see the response to the forged request.
