What is the "JBoss Web Service Console - Detect?"

The "JBoss Web Service Console - Detect" module is designed to detect misconfigurations in the JBoss Web Service console. JBoss Web Service is a software framework that allows developers to deploy and manage web services on the JBoss application server. This module specifically targets the JBoss Web Service console and checks for potential information disclosure vulnerabilities.

This module has a low severity level, indicating that the potential impact of the detected misconfigurations is relatively low.

This module was authored by DhiyaneshDK.


The JBoss Web Service console, when misconfigured, can disclose sensitive information about the remote system. This includes details about all the web services exposed by the system, which can potentially lead to an information disclosure vulnerability. It is important to address any misconfigurations detected by this module to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information.

How does the module work?

The "JBoss Web Service Console - Detect" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/jbossws/services" path of the target system. It then applies a series of matching conditions to determine if the JBoss Web Service console is misconfigured.

The matching conditions used by this module are as follows:

- The response body must contain the string "<JBossWS/Services></div>". This indicates that the JBoss Web Service console is present. - The response body must not contain the string "no endpoints deployed". This ensures that there are web services deployed on the system. - The HTTP response status code must be 200, indicating a successful request.

If all of these conditions are met, the module will report a potential misconfiguration in the JBoss Web Service console.

It is important to note that this module only detects misconfigurations and does not perform any actions to fix or exploit them.
