Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in lib/logout.php in DFLabs PTK 1.0.5 and earlier allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators or investigators for requests that trigger a logout.

* DFLabs PTK 1.0.5 and earlier
* DFLabs PTK 1.0.5 and later
PTK 1.0.5 (and lower) suffer from a CSRF vulnerability which allows an attacker to force administrator/investigator logout at web management interface. Furthermore PTK's default installation (following the procedure indicated into PTK's "INSTALL" file) doesn't perform "http to https" redirection in order to secure http connection by transport layer encryption. To default there isn't https redirection in the authentication phase as well as there isn't https redirection during other PTK's activities. If an internal attacker (the nature of this tool makes difficult that PTK may have public ip address) makes an Man in the Middle attack (I successfully made it using Dsniff and Ettercap) the CSRF vulnerability PTK is used in production environment and the investigator is conducting an analysis about internal people.
