Vulnerability Overview

Amazon EC2 instances might be susceptible to SSRF attacks, allowing external entities to send crafted requests that can access internal resources. This vulnerability primarily exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied URLs, potentially leading to unauthorized access and information disclosure.

Vulnerability Details

The vulnerability allows attackers to craft requests from the EC2 instance to the AWS metadata service. By exploiting this flaw, an attacker can obtain sensitive information such as AWS Access Keys and Secret Access Keys, enabling further attacks against the AWS infrastructure.

Possible Effects

An exploited SSRF vulnerability in EC2 instances can lead to significant security issues, including:

  • Unauthorized access to AWS resources.
  • Data leakage or loss.
  • Compromise of other cloud-based assets under the same AWS account.
