CWE-601 Open this link in a new tab

How to fix?

Upgrade keystone to version 0.3.6 or higher.


keystone is a Web Application Framework and Admin GUI / Content Management System built on Express.js and Mongoose. Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Open redirection which occurs when a vulnerable web page is redirected to an untrusted and malicious page that may compromise the user. Open redirection attacks usually come with a phishing attack because the modified vulnerable link is identical to the original site, which increases the likelihood of success for the phishing attack.
