CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-2880

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform parameter smuggling attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to incorrect handling of requests forwarded by ReverseProxy in net/http/httputil.
