The server's documentation  mentions the following. "By default, the Neo4j Server comes with some places where arbitrary code code execution can happen. These are the Section 19.15, “Traversals” REST endpoints. To secure these, either disable them completely by removing offending plugins from the server class-path, or secure access to these URLs through proxies or Authorization Rules." This could mean that the RCE itself is not CVE worthy as it is a documented/expected behavior. However, should the CSRF flaw be considered a vulnerability and assigned a CVE?
