Technical Details

Navigating to the Radar application at https://portal.radar.f-secure.com/ will result in the user being sent to https://portal.radar.f-secure.com/login?ReturnUrl=~2Fdashboard.

Upon successful authentication, the value of the ReturnURL query parameter will be used to determine the redirect destination. It is possible to set this to any arbitrary domain as the value is neither validated nor forced to be a relative path.

The following URL would redirect the user to example.com after logging in:

This could be used to send the user to a phishing site, prompting them to re-authenticate (e.g. “Wrong password or username, please try again”).
