Summary #

Netsparker detected an Open Redirection vulnerability in a POST parameter. Open redirect occurs when a web page is being redirected to another URL in another domain via a user-controlled input.

Impact #
Because the vulnerability can be only exploited via POST requests, its impact is very limited and it cannot be directly use for common Open Redirect attacks such as phishing.
Remediation #
  • Where possible, do not use users' input for URLs.
  • If you definitely need dynamic URLs, use whitelisting. Make a list of valid, accepted URLs and do not accept other URLs.
  • Ensure that you only accept URLs those are located on the trusted domains.
Classifications #
CWE-601, ISO27001-A.14.2.5, WASC-38, OWASP 2013-A10, OWASP 2017-A5
