What is the "Apache Drill Exposure" module?

The "Apache Drill Exposure" module is designed to detect misconfigurations in Apache Drill, an open-source distributed SQL query engine for big data exploration. This module focuses on identifying potential security vulnerabilities in Apache Drill installations.

This module has a low severity level, indicating that the identified vulnerabilities may have a limited impact on the overall security of the system.

If a misconfiguration is detected using the "Apache Drill Exposure" module, it could potentially expose sensitive data or allow unauthorized access to the Apache Drill instance. This could lead to data breaches, unauthorized data modifications, or other security incidents.

How does the module work?

The "Apache Drill Exposure" module works by sending HTTP requests to the target system and analyzing the responses based on predefined matching conditions. It checks for the presence of specific content in the response body, headers, and the HTTP status code.

For example, one of the matching conditions is to check if the response body contains the HTML title tag "<title>Apache Drill</title>". If this condition is met, it indicates that the target system is running Apache Drill.

The module also verifies the HTTP response status code, ensuring that it is 200 (OK), and checks if the response header indicates the content type as "text/html". These conditions help confirm the presence of an Apache Drill instance.

By combining these matching conditions, the module can accurately identify instances of Apache Drill and potential misconfigurations that may expose the system to security risks.
