Hi Team,

Vulnerability class: Business logic Failure - Browser cache management and logout vulnerability.

Vulnerability Impact: Logging out from an application does not clear the browser cache of any sensitive information that has been stored.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Login to portal.
2. Browse a few tabs
3. Click Logout
4. Click the browser back button you should able to see the previous page and not only the previous page but also viewed pages in the portal by clicking back button Please find the POC attachment below.

Please refer the POC attached,

Thanks and Regards,
Venkat Malla

We are considering this as:

  • Privacy risk under rare circumstances as almost all info in post-auth pages are public anyway, except email address, which may be affected only if an attacker has access to browser cache of a victim.
