What is the "Jetbrains Takeover Detection?"

The "Jetbrains Takeover Detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in Jetbrains software. Jetbrains is a popular software development company known for its integrated development environments (IDEs) such as IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm, and WebStorm. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could potentially lead to a takeover of Jetbrains software.

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

The original author of this module is pdteam.


If a takeover vulnerability is detected in Jetbrains software, it could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access or control over the affected software. This could lead to various security risks, including data breaches, unauthorized code execution, or manipulation of sensitive information.

How does the module work?

The "Jetbrains Takeover Detection" module works by analyzing specific conditions and performing HTTP requests to identify potential takeover vulnerabilities in Jetbrains software. It utilizes matching conditions to determine if the software is misconfigured or vulnerable to takeover attempts.

For example, one of the matching conditions used by this module is to check if the host is not an IP address. This condition helps identify potential misconfigurations where the host is not properly set up.

Another matching condition checks if the software is not a registered InCloud YouTrack instance. This condition helps identify potential vulnerabilities specific to Jetbrains' InCloud YouTrack software.

By combining multiple matching conditions, the module can accurately detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in Jetbrains software.

It is important to note that the module does not provide the actual JSON definitions or the complete technical implementation details. Instead, it focuses on the purpose and functionality of the module.

For more information, you can refer to the reference provided by the original author.

The maximum number of requests made by this module is limited to 1.
