Vuln ID: CVE-2020-28463

Published:  2021-02-18  16:15:12Z

Description: All versions of package reportlab are vulnerable to Server-side Request Forgery (SSRF) via img tags. In order to reduce risk, use trustedSchemes & trustedHosts (see in Reportlab’s documentation)

Steps to reproduce by Karan Bamal:

1. Download and install the latest package of reportlab
2. Go to demos -> odyssey -> dodyssey
3. In the text file odyssey.txt that needs to be converted to pdf inject <img src="http://127.0.0.1:5000" valign="top"/>
4. Create a nc listener nc -lp 5000
5. Run python3 dodyssey.py
6. You will get a hit on your nc showing we have successfully proceded to send a server side request
7. dodyssey.py will show error since there is no img file on the url, but we are able to do SSRF
