                                            `1. OVERVIEW  
  
F5 FirePass SSL VPN is vulnerable to Open URL Redirection.  
  
  
2. BACKGROUND  
  
F5 FirePass SSL VPN provides secure remote access to enterprise  
applications and data for users over any device or network while  
protecting your corporate. (See  
http://www.f5.com/pdf/products/firepass-overview.pdf)  
  
  
3. VULNERABILITY DESCRIPTION  
  
F5 FirePass SSL VPN contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site  
redirection attack. This flaw exists because the application does not  
validate the "refreshURL" parameter upon submission to the  
"my.activation.cns.php3" script. This could allow a user to create a  
specially crafted URL, that if clicked, would redirect a victim from  
the intended legitimate web site to an arbitrary web site of the  
attacker's choosing.
