3. Impact:

Potentially allow an attacker to compromise a victim’s Facebook account
and/or computer system.

Do you have an actual attack in mind which could accomplish either of these
goals, or is this wishful thinking? (Browser exploits don't really count, as
those would work just fine with or without the redirect.)

To be clear - open redirects are certainly a problem, but don't try to call
them any more than that.


Thanks for the note of sanity. Not everyone thinks they even a problem:

Tip for OWASP: when listing vulnerability classes, feel free to stop at 9
rather than struggling to find a random 10th, just because 10 is a nice
number :)


Cheers
Chris
