Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF):- SSRF is an attack in which an attacker can force a vulnerable server to trigger malicious requests to third-party servers and or to internal resources. This vulnerability can then be leveraged to launch specific attacks such as a cross-site port attack, service enumeration, and various other attacks.

Typically, an attacker has full or partial control of the request that is being sent and the server processes that request without any validation.
