Method :

Steps:


1. Go to forget password link on any website.

2. Intercept that request in burp suite.

3. Add header "X-Forwarded-Host: any.com"

4. Click go.


Now if you receive that reset password link from any.com server then you can successfully claim that vulnerability!


Impact

The victim will receive the malicious link in their email, and, when clicked, will leak the user's password reset link / token to the attacker, leading to full account takeover.
