What is the "Nagios Login Panel - Detect?"

The "Nagios Login Panel - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the Nagios login panel. Nagios is a popular open-source monitoring system used to monitor the availability and performance of IT infrastructure components. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations in the Nagios login panel.

This module has an informative severity level, which means it provides valuable information without indicating a critical vulnerability.


This module does not have a direct impact on the target system. It solely focuses on detecting the presence of the Nagios login panel and potential misconfigurations.

How the module works?

The "Nagios Login Panel - Detect" module works by sending HTTP requests to specific paths ("/nagios" and "/nagios3") commonly associated with the Nagios login panel. It then applies matching conditions to determine if the panel is present and if any misconfigurations exist.

An example of a matching condition used in this module is checking for the presence of the "Nagios Access" header in the HTTP response. Additionally, it verifies that the HTTP response status is 401 (Unauthorized).

By analyzing the responses and matching conditions, the module can identify if the Nagios login panel is accessible without proper authentication, indicating a potential misconfiguration.
