What is the "MySQL Exporter Panel - Detect?"

The "MySQL Exporter Panel - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the MySQL Exporter panel. This module targets MySQL databases and checks for the existence of the panel, which can indicate potential misconfigurations or vulnerabilities. The severity of this module is classified as informative, meaning it provides valuable information but does not pose an immediate threat. The original author of this module is DhiyaneshDk.


This module does not have a direct impact on the target system. Instead, it provides information about the presence of the MySQL Exporter panel, which can help identify potential security risks or misconfigurations that may require further investigation.

How does the module work?

The "MySQL Exporter Panel - Detect" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the target system's "/metrics" endpoint. It then applies matching conditions to the response to determine if the MySQL Exporter panel is present. The matching conditions include checking for specific keywords in the response body, such as "mysqld" and "# HELP", as well as verifying that the HTTP status code is 200 (OK).

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

GET /metrics

The module checks if the response body contains the keywords "mysqld" and "# HELP" and ensures that the HTTP status code is 200. If both conditions are met, the module reports the detection of the MySQL Exporter panel.
