HackerOne reported issue: Open redirects
We received a HackerOne report that the "Todos" page contains an open redirect. Details are below:
$GITLAB_INSTANCE = gitlab.com
Bug is in Dashboard::TodosController line 10
Likey Same bug in Projects::IssuesController line 32 and other places in the codebase where you redirect_to params.merge(..)
Note, maybe dashboard requires you to be logged in, but maybe more seriously issues controller doesn't.
Another almost identical HackerOne report:
While experimenting with Repository Import functionality on a fresh GitLab 9.0 CE install, I noticed that the continue[to] parameter can be used to perform an Open Redirect through the inclusion of a double-slash prefix.
Proof of Concept
The following Proof of Concept URL enables a malicious actor to execute this redirect against any user – as long as they have permissions to view a certain repository.
I first noticed the continue[to] parameter while receiving the You're not allowed to make changes to this project directly message – demonstrating that edit-level access to the repository in question is not required.
