New 'ParseThru' Parameter Smuggling Vulnerability Affects Golang-based Applications

Security researchers have discovered a new vulnerability called ParseThru affecting Golang-based applications that could be abused to gain unauthorized access to cloud-based applications. "The newly discovered vulnerability allows a threat actor to bypass validations under certain conditions, as a result of the use of unsafe URL parsing methods built in the language," Israeli cybersecurity firm Oxeye said in a report shared with The Hacker News. The issue, at its core, has to do with inconsistencies stemming from changes introduced to Golang's URL parsing logic that's implemented in the "net/url" library.
