Description

In Moodle, insufficient redirect handling made it possible to blindly bypass cURL blocked hosts/allowed ports restrictions, resulting in a blind SSRF risk.

Solution(s)

  • moodle-upgrade-3_10_5
  • moodle-upgrade-3_11_1
  • moodle-upgrade-3_9_8

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
