IBM Robotic Process Automation is vulnerable to an issue where an API could be used to perform a DNS lookup via a third party provider.
DESCRIPTION: IBM Robotic Process Automation is vulnerable to External Service Interaction attack, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to induce the application to perform server-side DNS lookups or HTTP requests to arbitrary domain names. By submitting suitable payloads, an attacker can cause the application server to attack other systems that it can interact with.
