Technical Details & Description:  
An open redirect web vulnerability has been discovered in the official SimpleView CRM web-application.  
The bug allows remote attackers to execute external urls by the internal web-application requests via client-side.  
The vulnerability is located in the `redirect` parameter of the vulnerable `./crm/track/` module. The vulnerability allows an remote   
attacker to prepare client-side malicious urls to external sources. The request method to execute is GET and the vulnerability is   
located on the application-side of the online-service. The vulnerability is a classic open redirect web vulnerability.  
The security risk of the open redirect web vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.0.   
Exploitation of the persistent input validation web vulnerability requires no privileged user account and low or medium user interaction.   
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in client-side redirects to malicious sources or client-side phishing.  
Request Method(s):  
[+] GET  
Vulnerable Module(s):  
[+] ./crm/track/  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] redirect  
Proof of Concept (PoC):

For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.  
Open redirect in the following module: /plugins/crm/track/?key=4_314&redirect=  
Solution - Fix & Patch:  
The vulnerability can be patched by a secure restriction of the `redirect/key` parameter in the `plugins` module of the software.  
Disallow to request not whitelisted webpages in the `redirect` value and include a tag filter to prevent as well.  
Security Risk:  
The security risk of the client-side open redirect web vulnerability in the simpleview crm web-application is estimated as low. (CVSS 2.8)
