high Nessus Plugin ID 152483
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote GitLab install is missing a security patch and is affected by a SSRF vulnerability.


The remote GitLab install contains a Server-side request forgery (SSRF) vulnerability as a result of the internal network for webhooks being enabled. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit a registration-limited GitLab instance causing it to make HTTP requests to an arbitrary domain of the attacker's choosing.


Apply the appropriate patch as referenced in the vendor advisory.
