Amazon S3 Torrent Download - Detect

What is the "Amazon S3 Torrent Download - Detect" module?

The "Amazon S3 Torrent Download - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of Amazon S3 Torrent downloads. It targets Amazon S3 buckets and aims to identify misconfigurations that could potentially allow malicious users to download files. This module is classified as informative, meaning it provides valuable information about potential vulnerabilities without actively exploiting them. The module was authored by ambassify.


If the module detects an Amazon S3 Torrent download, it indicates a potential security risk. This could allow unauthorized access to sensitive files stored in the affected Amazon S3 bucket. It is important to address any misconfigurations identified by this module to prevent unauthorized file downloads.

How does the module work?

The "Amazon S3 Torrent Download - Detect" module works by sending HTTP requests to the target Amazon S3 bucket. It specifically looks for the presence of certain words in the response body, such as "RequestTorrentOfBucketError" and "s3-tracker". If any of these words are found, the module considers the presence of an Amazon S3 Torrent download and raises an alert.

Here is an example of an HTTP request sent by the module:

GET /?torrent

The module uses the following matching conditions:

- The response body must contain either "RequestTorrentOfBucketError" or "s3-tracker".

By analyzing the response and matching conditions, the module determines whether an Amazon S3 Torrent download is present in the target bucket.
