It is possible to force the ownCloud server to execute GET requests against a crafted URL on the internal or external network (Server Side Request Forgery) after receiving a public link-share URL. The criticality of this issue
is lowered because the attacker can not see the result of the forged request thus there is no possibility to exfiltrate any data from an internal resource.
