What is the "Joomla! Panel?"

The "Joomla! Panel" module is designed to detect misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in Joomla!, an open-source content management system. It is an informative module with a low severity level. The original author of this module is its0x08.


This module aims to identify potential security issues in Joomla! installations. By detecting misconfigurations or vulnerabilities, it helps website owners and administrators take necessary actions to secure their Joomla! websites.

How does the module work?

The "Joomla! Panel" module works by sending HTTP requests to the target website's administrator panel ("/administrator/"). It then applies matching conditions to identify specific patterns in the response. The module looks for the presence of the following elements:

- A meta tag with the content attribute set to "Joomla! - Open Source Content Management" - An image with the source attribute pointing to "/administrator/templates/isis/images/joomla.png"

If both conditions are met, the module considers the target website to be running Joomla!. The module's purpose is to provide information about the presence of Joomla! on a website, rather than actively exploit any vulnerabilities.

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

GET /administrator/

The module then analyzes the response to determine if it matches the specified conditions.
