Response mail & HOF

Hacker Mode ONN

On the way to the online classes I came across Razorpay’s VDP and thought of hunting some bugs over there, and started to discover the subdomains and got a fresh one. So I started focusing on that particular subdomain, let us take it as . While roaming over the subdomain for few minutes, I thought of getting started with simple bugs related to misconfiguration. The site was using OAuth Functionality, Its something like we can sign in or signup into the site with third party services like Google, Facebook, etc., So I tried to find Oauth misconfiguration related bugs. There are many use cases for these kind of bugs, so i started to test one by one, and at last I found one

The Bug

Name of Vulnerability : Preaccount Takeover due to lack of email and password verification

Areas Affected : OAuth Sign In page

Impact : The attacker can access the victims account till the victim changes his password.

Steps to Reproduce :

  1. Create an account using the “Sign in with Email” option.Use Victim’s email address and set password whatever you want. ( For testing purpose used my own email address)
  2. Next after signing up, log out of the account and try login with OAuth Functionality.
  3. Now once you are in the account , change some info like Name, address or anything.
  4. Now again logout and sign in with the Email and Password you created on Step 1.
  5. Now you can see the account with changed info,hence the vulnerability exists.
