CSRF4BlackHat - So it begins...

Uses for Cross-site Request forgery from the blackhat SEO perspective:

* Publishing/Spamming links: People spamming forums with links is nothing new. By utilizing CSRF on the otherhand you could force a website user base (either by embedding it into your site html directly, or by utilizing an XSS vulnerability) to submit forms with your url without their knowledge.

* Redirectors: Search engines and sites displaying a sites rank (blogs, top sites community, top referers/incoming site links, etc...) count the number of times a specific url is clicked or visited. If you can get the user to visit the site via CSRF, then you can potentially influence these counters using unique hostnames/sessions (if logged in already).


How about some pratical examples?

I'll start the first one: hxxp://

How about artificially voting for something that gets you higher in rankings elsewhere?
