URL Redirection to Untrusted Site ('Open Redirect')


Severity Medium
Score 6.1/10


alltube is an html front end for youtube-dl. CVE-2022-0768 addressed this issue in version 3.0.2 but didn't fix it completely, an attacker could craft a special HTML page to trigger either an open redirect attack or a Server-Side Request Forgery attack (depending on how AllTube is configured). The impact is mitigated by the fact the SSRF attack is only possible when the `stream` option is enabled in the configuration. (This option is disabled by default.) Version 3.0.3 contains a fix for this vulnerability.
