people.mozilla.org incorrectly redirected to people.mozilla.com

Reported by: cypherpunks Owned by: pde
Priority: Medium Milestone: HTTPS-E next Firefox dev release
Component: HTTPS Everywhere/EFF-HTTPS Everywhere Version: HTTPS-E 3.4.3
Severity: Keywords: httpse-ruleset-bug

Description

The server at people.mozilla.com redirects requests to people.mozilla.org, but the Mozilla rule in HTTPS-Everywhere redirects requests to the .org version to the .com version. This results in an infinite loop.

The notes in the XML for mozilla.org subdomains include:

  • people (→ people.mozilla.com)

This should probably be reversed in the notes as well as in the ruleset. I don't know whether the .com domain used to be canonical one, and then Mozilla changed it; or if it's always been incorrect in the ruleset.

As an aside: This issue was found while using HTTPS-Everywhere 3.4.5 for Firefox; this version does not appear to be in the Version dropdown for the this ticket, so I picked 3.4.3 instead.
