What is the "Apache Tomcat Example Scripts - Detect" module?

The "Apache Tomcat Example Scripts - Detect" module is designed to detect multiple Apache Tomcat example scripts. It targets misconfigurations in the Apache Tomcat server, which can potentially lead to security vulnerabilities. This module focuses on identifying potential weaknesses in the server configuration and provides valuable insights for administrators to address these issues.

This module has an informative severity level, which means it provides valuable information without indicating an immediate security threat. It helps administrators identify potential risks and take appropriate actions to secure their Apache Tomcat server.


The module aims to identify misconfigurations in Apache Tomcat example scripts. These misconfigurations can expose sensitive information or provide unauthorized access to attackers. By detecting these vulnerabilities, administrators can proactively address the issues and prevent potential security breaches.

How the module works?

The "Apache Tomcat Example Scripts - Detect" module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to identify potential misconfigurations in Apache Tomcat example scripts. It sends specific GET requests to various paths associated with the example scripts, such as "/examples/servlets/index.html" and "/examples/jsp/index.html".

The module includes a matcher condition that checks for specific words in the response body, such as "JSP Examples," "JSP Samples," "Servlets Examples," "WebSocket Examples," and "GET based form." If any of these words are found, it indicates the presence of the corresponding example script.

By analyzing the responses and matching conditions, the module determines whether the Apache Tomcat server has example scripts exposed and potentially misconfigured. This information can help administrators identify and rectify any vulnerabilities in their server configuration.
