Acunetix 360 detected a DOM based Open Redirection vulnerability. Open redirect occurs when a web page is being redirected to another URL in another domain via a user-controlled input.
An attacker can use this vulnerability to redirect users to other malicious websites, which can be used for phishing and similar attacks.
- 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.
