A remote redirection (external) vulnerability is detected in the Barracuda SSL VPN 680 v2.2.2.203 (Vx) Web Application Appliance.
The bug allows remote attackers to prepare links to client side external redirects with malware, phishing websites or malicious 
web context. 

The vulnerability is located in the resourceId parameter request when processing to load an internal returnTo file redirect.

The vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privilege application user account and with low user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability result in an unauthorized client side redirect to malicious external websites or servers. 

Vulnerable Module(s):
				[+] [resourceId]

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
				[+] returnTo

Proof of Concept:
The vulnerability can be exploited by remote attacker without privileged application user account but with medium or
high required user inter action. For demonstration or reproduce ...

The first url shows the standard request via GET request

The secound url shows the manipulated remote context via GET request

https://sslvpn.[SERVER]/[FILE].do?[RES+ID]=x&[POLICY]=x&returnTo=[EXTERNAL TARGET]

The vulnerability can be patched by allowing only local file requests when processing to load the vulnerable returnTo parameter via GET.
