Published: March 30, 2022
CVE number: CVE-2022-24794
Users of the
requiresAuth middleware, either directly or through the default

If all routes under
example.com are protected with the
requiresAuth middleware, a visit to
http://example.com//google.com will be redirected to
google.com after login because the original url reported by the Express framework is not properly sanitised.
