This attack abuses a misconfigured proxy that allows access to the metadata IP or a name which resolves to the IP. A standard proxy request is made to the proxy using the full metadata URL, which the proxy will fulfill to its own metadata service. The proxy may also be vulnerable to host/port enumeration on localhost or inside the private network.
