This vulnerability has been assigned the CVE identifier CVE-2021-44528. Versions Affected: >= 6.0.0. Not affected: < 6.0.0 Fixed Versions: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 7.0.0.rc2 Impact ------ Specially crafted "X-Forwarded-Host" headers in combination with certain "allowed host" formats can cause the Host Authorization middleware in Action Pack to redirect users to a malicious website. Impacted applications will have allowed hosts with a leading dot. For example, configuration files that look like this: ``` config.hosts << '.EXAMPLE.com' ``` When an allowed host contains a leading dot, a specially crafted Host header can be used to redirect to a malicious website. This vulnerability is similar to CVE-2021-22881 and CVE-2021-22942. Releases -------- The fixed releases are available at the normal locations.
