Open redirect vulnerabilities article - (IN)SECURE Issue 17



I've written a comprehensive piece on the dangers of open redirects that's been published in Issue 17 of (IN)SECURE Magazine. Page 43 for your reading pleasure.
"An open redirect is a vulnerability that exists when a script allows redirection to an external site by directly calling a specific URL in an unfiltered, unmanaged fashion, which could be used to redirect victims to unintended, malicious web sites."
This issue is a giant pet peeve of mine; the article is intended to increase awareness of the dangers of this vulnerability and promote mitigation.
