Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the SOAP API endpoints of the webservices directory of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace could allow an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to perform a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient CSRF protections in the API endpoints. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing the
admin of the MeetingPlace instance to visit an attacker controlled website that unknowingly allows the creation of a new admin user. A successful
exploit could allow the attacker to use the new admin user to conduct further attacks.
