Amazon Web Services CDN Cache Poisoning Vulnerability Scanner Detail

Amazon Web Services: Usage and Significance

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subsidiary of Amazon providing on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals, companies, and governments, on a metered pay-as-you-go basis. The services offered by AWS are widely adopted for various purposes, ranging from hosting websites and applications to data storage and analytics, machine learning, and much more [1][2].

Understanding CDN Cache Poisoning in AWS

CDN Cache Poisoning is a sophisticated form of cyberattack that targets the cached content delivery process. By manipulating the caching mechanism, attackers can insert a malicious response that gets served to users, instead of the legitimate content. This could potentially affect any service that uses a Content Delivery Network (CDN), including those hosted on AWS [3].

Consequences of CDN Cache Poisoning Exploits on AWS

If CDN Cache Poisoning vulnerabilities within AWS services/software are exploited, it could lead to several significant threats, such as:

  • Distribution of malware or phishing campaigns.
  • Attacker-controlled content being served to unsuspecting users.
  • Compromise of sensitive user data.
  • Erosion of trust in the legitimately hosted application or service.
