Server-Side Request Forgery
Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF) attackers abuse functionality on the server to read or update internal resources. The attacker can supply or modify a URL for the server to read or submit data to. By carefully selecting the URLs, the attacker may be able to read server configuration such as AWS metadata, connect to internal services like http enabled databases or perform post requests for internal services which are not intended to be exposed.
