CVE-2015-8094 - Hue - Open URL Redirection

Summary

There was a URL redirection issue with the login page of the Hue application. This relates to values given to the 'next' GET parameter accepted when accessing the login page. The value from the 'next' parameter was used as a redirection location immediately after authentication. This is a problem because it could be used by malicious parties in a phishing attack. 


Exploit

To exploit the issue, something similar to the following URL could be sent to a victim user of the system: 

http://<hue server>:8888/accounts/login/?next=//www.harmfultrust.com

After a successful login, the victim would be redirected to www.harmfultrust.com using the schema from the original link.
