Translate WordPress with GTranslate <= 2.8.10 - Open Redirect

URL Redirection to Untrusted Site ('Open Redirect')
CVSS 6.1 (Medium)
Publicly Published February 3, 2017
Last Updated December 5, 2022


The Google Translate Plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to Open Redirect in versions up to, and including, 2.8.10. This is due to the application failing to properly verify user-supplied input from the `gurl` parameter. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to exploit this issue and redirect users to arbitrary web sites and conduct phishing attacks; other attacks are also possible.
