    +title: "CVE-2016-8737: Cross-site request forgery vulnerability in Apache Brooklyn"
    +## Severity
    +## Vendor
    +The Apache Software Foundation
    +## Versions Affected
    +Apache Brooklyn 0.9.0 and all prior versions
    +## Description
    +Apache Brooklyn's REST server is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery (CSRF), which
could permit a malicious web site to produce a link which, if clicked whilst a user is logged
in to Brooklyn, would cause the server to execute the attacker's commands as the user.  There
is known to be a proof-of-concept exploit using this vulnerability.
    +## Solution
    +Upgrade to Apache Brooklyn 0.10.0. This includes commit [1] adding opt-in CSRF protection
server-side and commit [2] where the JS client opts-in.

    I would make the reference numbers links to either the source article or the references.
Perhaps make Apache Booklyn 0.10.0 a link to the download page?
