title: Insufficient URI encoding in restforce
A flaw in how restforce constructs URL's may allow an attacker to inject
additional parameters into Salesforce API requests.
This flaw is only exploitable in applications that pass user input directly
to restforce's select, find, describe, update, upsert, and destroy methods.
Vulnerable code might look like:
In such an application, attackers could pass `0016000000MRatd/describe`
as a request parameter, causing the server to make a request to a different
endpoint than the server is designed to handle. Since the Salesforce REST
API supports overriding HTTP methods via a request parameter, an attacker
could also cause the client's `select()` method to modify data, by passing
If possible, applications should track salesforce IDs internally, rather than
passing user-supplied IDs to salesforce. Such practice mitigates this
vulnerability, and in general is desirable for ensuring strong access control.
