I'm running Redis for use with Rails and Action Cable. These all sit behind an Nginx reverse proxy. Currently whenever Redis is connected to, I get

# Possible SECURITY ATTACK detected. It looks like somebody is sending POST or Host: commands to Redis. This is likely due to an attacker attempting to use Cross Protocol Scripting to compromise your Redis instance. Connection aborted.

Is it possible the Nginx setup is causing this? Here is the config if so:

server {
       server_name "###";
                                                                                                                                                                                    location / {                                                                                                                                                                          proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:3000;                                                                                                                                            proxy_set_header  X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;

  • What do you mean by "whenever Redis is connected to"? What is connecting to Redis? In what manner? Aug 10, 2021 at 21:34
