PyTorch TorchServe SSRF (CVE-2023-43654)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 184080


The remote host contains a machine learning library that is affected by a Server Side Request Forgery vulnerability.


The remote host contains a torchserve version that is prior to 0.8.2. It is, therefore, affected by a Server Side Request Forgery vulnerability. TorchServe default configuration lacks proper input validation, enabling third parties to invoke remote HTTP download requests and write files to the disk. This issue could be taken advantage of to compromise the integrity of the system and sensitive data. This issue is present in versions 0.1.0 to 0.8.1. A remote attacker can exploit this and load the malicious model of their choice from any URL.


Upgrade to the TorchServe 0.8.2 or later.
