CSRF vulnerability in the admin panel

The quality of our software has always been the most important thing for us. Nevertheless, live issues happen and only thanks to your alertness we are able to fix them and improve. So, what happened?

Affected versions

Sylius 1.0.0 to 1.0.16, 1.1.0 to 1.1.8, 1.2.0 to 1.2.1 versions of AdminBundle and ResourceBundle are affected by this security issue.

This issue has been fixed in Sylius 1.0.17, 1.1.9 and 1.2.2. Development branch for 1.3 release has also been fixed.


The following actions in the admin panel did not require a CSRF token:

  • marking order’s payment as completed
  • marking order’s payment as refunded
  • marking product review as accepted
  • marking product review as rejected


The issue is fixed by adding a required CSRF token to those actions.

We also fixed ResourceController‘s  applyStateMachineTransitionAction
method by adding a CSRF token check. If you use that action in the API context, you can disable it by adding csrf_protection: false to its routing configuration.


We would like to thank Paweł Waniek for reporting this security issue and Kamil for a quick reaction.
