What is the "cargo takeover detection?"

The "cargo takeover detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in the Cargo software. Cargo is a platform that allows users to build, deploy, and share their Rust projects. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could potentially lead to a takeover of the Cargo platform.

This module has a severity level of high, indicating that the identified vulnerabilities could have a significant impact on the security and functionality of the Cargo software.

This module was authored by pdteam.


If a takeover vulnerability is successfully exploited, an attacker could gain unauthorized access to the Cargo platform. This could result in the compromise of user data, unauthorized code execution, or other malicious activities.

How does the module work?

The "cargo takeover detection" module works by analyzing specific HTTP request templates and matching conditions. It checks for certain patterns or configurations that indicate potential takeover vulnerabilities in the Cargo software.

One example of a matching condition used by this module is the detection of a specific phrase in the response body of an HTTP request. For instance, if the response body contains the following phrase:

If you're moving your domain away from Cargo you must make this configuration through your registrar's DNS control panel.

This module considers it as a potential misconfiguration that could lead to a takeover vulnerability.

By analyzing various matching conditions, the module identifies potential vulnerabilities and reports them for further investigation and remediation.
