Facebook URL Redirection Vulnerability

Friends, Recently I found a "Redirection Vulnerability" inside Facebook, However facebook refused to accept it as according to them the vulnerability targets very few people. This is what they replied:

Hi Rafay,

This endpoint contains a specialized parameter that limits its usage to a small number of computers and users, preventing it from being used as a completely open redirect. For more detailed background information, please see this note by one of the engineers on the product: http://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-security/link-shim-protecting-the-people-who-use-facebook-from-malicious-urls/10150492832835766

Facebook Open Redirect Vulnerability

Affected Application   : Main Website
Severity     : Medium
Local/Remote    : Remote
Vulnerable url     : http://facebook.com/l.php?u=http://rafayhackingarticles.net&sugexp=chrome,mod=9

Vulnerable URL:

Discovered by: Rafay Baloch - [rafaybaloch(at)gmail(dot)com]


Due to a parameter filtering weakness any supplied input is accepted; as result redirects a user to the parameter value without any validation.

Note: This vulnerability works for only few users, It won't work for every one.

Upadate: If the URL mentioned above does not work, kindly try the following:


  1. How does this equate to facebook being hacked?

  8. @ Anonymous 6 : Suppose I have an infected website and want the victim to visit it to make his computer infected, I'll attach my infected website's url behind the trusted website's url and make the victim believe that it's a part of the trusted website.
