Bug Description

A list moderator or list member can potentially carry out a CSRF attach by getting a list admin to visit a crafted web page.

A moderator or list member can get an admindb or options page with a CSRF token and use that token in a crafted POST request to the admin page to change the list admin password or other settings and convince an admin to submit the POST.

Likewise, a list member can do the same with a POST to the admindb page to handle requests.
