What is the "MailHog Panel - Detect" module?

The "MailHog Panel - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the MailHog panel, a web-based user interface for MailHog, an email testing tool. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities related to the MailHog panel. The severity of the detected issue is classified as informative, meaning it provides valuable information but does not pose an immediate threat.

The detection of the MailHog panel does not directly indicate any impact or risk. However, it may suggest the potential for misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in the MailHog panel, which could lead to unauthorized access or other security issues. Further investigation and remediation are recommended to ensure the secure usage of the MailHog panel.

How does the module work?

The "MailHog Panel - Detect" module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to identify the presence of the MailHog panel. It performs the following checks:

- Checks the response body for the presence of keywords such as "MailHog" and "SMTP server". - Verifies that the HTTP response status code is 200 (OK).

If both conditions are met, the module considers the MailHog panel to be detected.

Here is an example of an HTTP request that the module may send:

GET / HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Vidoc-Scanner

The module matches the response body against the specified keywords and checks the response status code to determine if the MailHog panel is present.

It's important to note that this module only detects the MailHog panel and does not perform any further actions or exploit any vulnerabilities.
