The redirect.php file supplied with osCommerce is ...

The redirect. php file supplied with osCommerce is designed to provide redirection to offsite links. It also allows someone to redirect via an osCommerce install to another web or file on the web. While this might not seem too problematic, this could be used by a malicious user to obscure the source of a file when a link is clicked.
This modification was written in response to the actions of a spammer using our osCommerce installation's "redirect. php" to allow his emails to avoid commom spam blacklists. Our domain was flagged by Spamcop as a result of the spammer's actions.
The modified redirect. php checks that the url that has been passed to the script is one you have entered as a product url.
If a user attempts to redirect to a url that is not in the products_description table, the user will be redirected to the catalog homepage.
Since finding the issue I have found a couple of sites on the web publicising the issue.
