Vulnerable Domain:

Vulnerability: “Open Redirect Vulnerability”

So my journey start to finding this bug as i just stumble upon and try to find out some Vulnerability on that domain.

that redirect on other website, in the end it will redirect to

thus , showing a redirection bug that is considered as very critical because it may be use for Phishing or redirect user to any Malicious Website.
