Collectd Exporter Metrics

What is the "Collectd Exporter Metrics?"

The "Collectd Exporter Metrics" module is designed to detect misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, or software fingerprints related to the Collectd Exporter. This module has a low severity level and was authored by DhiyaneshDk.


The impact of the "Collectd Exporter Metrics" module depends on the specific misconfiguration, vulnerability, or software fingerprint it detects. It is important to address any issues identified by this module to ensure the security and proper functioning of the Collectd Exporter.

How the module works?

The "Collectd Exporter Metrics" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/metrics" path. It then applies matching conditions to determine if the response indicates the presence of the Collectd Exporter. The matching conditions include:

- Checking if the response body contains the words "# HELP" and "collectd_" - Verifying that the response status is 200

If both matching conditions are met, the module identifies the presence of the Collectd Exporter.

Example HTTP request:

GET /metrics

It is important to note that this module is just one test case within the Vidoc platform, which utilizes multiple modules for scanning purposes.
