Web Server Generic 3xx Redirect

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 33927

Synopsis

The remote web server allows redirects to arbitrary domains.

Description

The remote web server is configured to redirect users using a HTTP 302, 303 or 307 response. However, the server can redirect to a domain that includes components included in the original request.

A remote attacker could exploit this by crafting a URL which appears to resolve to the remote server, but redirects to a malicious location.

Solution

Contact the web server vendor for a fix.
