Fortinet FortiOS < 5.2.15, 5.4.0 < 6.0.5 SSL VPN web portal Host Header Redirection (FG-IR-19-002)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 125889

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by a host header redirection vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is running a version of FortiOS prior to 5.2.15 or 5.4.0 prior to 6.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by a host header redirection vulnerability in the SSL VPN web portal due to a failure to properly validate HTTP request headers. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request to redirect SSL VPN web portal users to arbitrary web domains.

Solution

Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version to 5.2.15, 6.0.5 or 6.2.0 or later. Alternatively, apply one of the workarounds outlined in the linked advisory
