[CarrierWave download feature](https://github.com/carrierwaveuploader/carrierwave#uploading-files-from-a-remote-location has an SSRF vulnerability, allowing attacks to provide DNS entries or IP addresses that are intended for internal use and gather information about the Intranet infrastructure of the platform.
Using proper network segmentation and applying the principle of least privilege to outbound connections from application servers can reduce the severity of SSRF vulnerabilities. Ideally the vulnerable gem should run on an isolated server without access to any internal network resources or cloud metadata access.
