The PaperCut Panel - Detect module is an effective tool for the Vidoc scanning platform specifically designed to identify the presence of the PaperCut print management system on a web platform. PaperCut is a prevalent software solution providing several functionalities and is critical for efficient print management. The severity of this module is stated as "informative", implying it provides valuable insights rather than exposing vulnerabilities or misconfigurations.


This module is essential for organizations using the Vidoc platform to scan their web applications. It allows them to determine if the PaperCut print management system is in use efficiently through an automated process. By identifying this software, organizations can gain critical understanding of the underlying print management structure and potential areas for optimization or need for updates.

How the Module Works

At a technical level, the PaperCut Panel - Detect module performs its function by utilizing HTTP request templates and specifying matching conditions. It sends GET requests to the /user path and thereafter evaluates the response.

GET /user

The module looks for certain keywords such as content="PaperCut" and <title>PaperCut Login</title> in the body of the response. The HTTP status code 200 is also expected for a successful match. The conditions should be met for a positive match, signaling the presence of the PaperCut system and indicating successful operation of the module.
