Helpjuice Takeover Detection

This module is designed to detect the presence of a takeover vulnerability in Helpjuice software. Helpjuice is a knowledge base software that allows companies to create and manage their own help center or documentation.

A takeover vulnerability in Helpjuice can have a high severity impact on the security of the software. It can potentially allow unauthorized individuals to gain control over the Helpjuice instance and access sensitive information or perform malicious actions.

This module is an essential tool for organizations using Helpjuice to identify and mitigate any takeover vulnerabilities, ensuring the security and integrity of their knowledge base.


A successful takeover of a Helpjuice instance can lead to severe consequences, including:

- Unauthorized access to sensitive information - Manipulation or deletion of documentation - Disruption of services - Potential exposure of customer data

It is crucial to address any identified takeover vulnerabilities promptly to prevent these potential risks.

How the module works?

The module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to detect the presence of a takeover vulnerability in Helpjuice software.

It performs a series of checks, including:

- Verifying that the host is not an IP address, as takeover vulnerabilities often target domain names - Searching for a specific string, such as "We could not find what you're looking for," which may indicate a potential takeover

If the module identifies a match based on the defined conditions, it triggers the specified action, which in this case is reporting the vulnerability.

Here is an example of an HTTP request used by the module:

GET / HTTP/1.1

The module then analyzes the response and applies the matching conditions to determine if a takeover vulnerability exists.

By using this module, organizations can proactively identify and address any takeover vulnerabilities in their Helpjuice instances, enhancing the overall security of their knowledge base.
