What is the "Epson Printer?" module?

The "Epson Printer" module is a test case designed to detect the presence of an Epson printer web panel. It targets Epson printers and aims to identify any misconfigurations or vulnerabilities associated with the web control interface. The module has an informative severity level and was authored by pussycat0x.


By detecting the Epson printer web panel, this module helps identify potential security risks or configuration issues that could be exploited by attackers. It provides valuable insights into the security posture of Epson printers and allows for appropriate remediation measures to be taken.

How does the module work?

The "Epson Printer" module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to identify the presence of the Epson printer web panel. It sends a GET request to the "/cgi-bin/home" path and applies two matching conditions:

- Matcher 1: It checks if the response contains any of the following keywords: "Epson Web Control," "Basic Control," or "Advanced." This condition ensures that the web panel is correctly identified. - Matcher 2: It verifies that the response status is 200, indicating a successful request. This condition confirms that the web panel is accessible.

By combining these matching conditions, the module determines whether the Epson printer web panel is present and accessible.

Example HTTP request:

GET /cgi-bin/home

The module's matching conditions ensure that the response contains the appropriate keywords and has a status code of 200.
