What is the "Misconfigured Concrete5" module?

The "Misconfigured Concrete5" module is a test case designed to detect misconfigurations in websites running on the Concrete5 content management system (CMS). Concrete5 is an open-source CMS that allows users to easily create and manage websites. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations in Concrete5 installations, which can potentially lead to security vulnerabilities.

This module has a low severity level, indicating that the detected misconfigurations may not pose a significant risk but should still be addressed to ensure the security and proper functioning of the website.

This module was authored by pdteam.


If a misconfiguration is detected in a Concrete5 installation, it can potentially expose sensitive information or allow unauthorized access to the website. This can lead to various security risks, such as data breaches, defacement of the website, or the injection of malicious code.

How does the module work?

The "Misconfigured Concrete5" module works by sending HTTP requests to the target website and analyzing the responses for specific patterns that indicate a misconfiguration. It uses matching conditions to identify the presence of certain keywords or phrases in the website's HTML body.

For example, one of the matching conditions used by this module is to search for the phrase "concrete5 has encountered an issue" in the HTML body. If this phrase is found, it indicates a potential misconfiguration in the Concrete5 installation.

It's important to note that the module does not provide the actual JSON definitions or the complete technical details of the matching conditions. Instead, it focuses on the purpose and functionality of the module in detecting misconfigurations in Concrete5.
