CWE ID 918


CVE-2023-50259 is a vulnerability in Medusa, an automatic video library manager for TV shows. Versions prior to 1.0.19 are affected by an unauthenticated blind server-side request forgery (SSRF) issue. This vulnerability allows for crafting POST requests on behalf of the Medusa server. The testslack request handler in medusa/server/web/home/ does not validate the user-controlled slack_webhook variable, leading to the blind SSRF. To remediate this vulnerability, users need to update to version 1.0.19, which contains a fix for the issue. The potential danger of this vulnerability is that it could allow attackers to manipulate the Medusa server and potentially gain unauthorized access or perform malicious actions within the organization's network.
