What is the "Pa11y Dashboard Exposure" module?

The "Pa11y Dashboard Exposure" module is designed to detect any misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in the Pa11y Dashboard software. Pa11y Dashboard is a web accessibility testing tool that helps identify and fix accessibility issues on websites. This module focuses on exposing any potential security weaknesses in the Pa11y Dashboard, allowing users to take appropriate actions to mitigate the risks.

This module has a severity level of low, indicating that the identified vulnerabilities may have limited impact or pose a lower risk to the system.


The "Pa11y Dashboard Exposure" module aims to identify any misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in the Pa11y Dashboard software. If any security weaknesses are found, they could potentially be exploited by malicious actors to gain unauthorized access, manipulate data, or disrupt the functionality of the Pa11y Dashboard.

How the module works?

The "Pa11y Dashboard Exposure" module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to identify potential vulnerabilities. It performs the following checks:

- Checks if the response body contains the phrases "Pa11y Dashboard" and "Add new URL". - Verifies if the response header includes the content type "text/html". - Ensures that the HTTP response status code is 200 (OK).

If all of these conditions are met, the module considers the Pa11y Dashboard software as potentially exposed to misconfigurations or vulnerabilities.

It is important to note that this module does not provide specific details about the vulnerabilities found, but rather serves as an initial indicator for further investigation and remediation.
