#10809 closed defect (fixed)

Potential open redirect

Reported by: Jared Jurkiewicz Owned by: James Burke
Priority: high Milestone: 1.4.2
Component: General Version: 1.4.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


Reported by a co-worker doing security analysis:

This kind of attack is possible when a web application accepts a user-controlled input that specifies a link to an external site. By modifying the URL value to a malicious site, an attacker may successfully launch a phishing scam and steal user credentials. Because the server name in the modified link is identical to the original site, phishing attempts have a more trustworthy appearance.

This is also sometimes called “Open Redirect”.
