CVE-2022-0597 Scanner Detail

Microweber is a drag-and-drop website builder and a powerful content management system (CMS) built on the Laravel PHP framework. It enables users to create websites and online stores easily without needing to write code. Microweber is popular among small to medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs for its ease of use, flexibility, and comprehensive features that include e-commerce, blogging, and website customization. It's designed to help users launch their online presence quickly and efficiently.

The vulnerability is specifically found in the logout functionality of Microweber, where the redirect_to parameter is not properly validated. An attacker can craft a URL that includes the malicious redirect_to parameter, and when a user logs out, they are redirected to an attacker-controlled website. This issue arises due to insufficient input validation and sanitization, highlighting the importance of adequately verifying and encoding external input to prevent unintended redirects.

Exploiting this vulnerability could lead to various adverse effects, including phishing attacks, stealing of sensitive information, and damaging the credibility of the affected site. Users might be redirected to malicious sites that appear legitimate but are designed to steal personal, financial, or login information. Such attacks can compromise user privacy and security, and erode trust in the website.
