Automate Recon and scanning process with Vidoc. All security teams in one place
The phpMemcachedAdmin Panel is a module designed to detect misconfigurations in the phpMemcachedAdmin software. It targets instances of phpMemcachedAdmin that have been exposed to the internet, potentially leading to unauthorized access and data leakage. This module has a medium severity level, indicating that the misconfigurations it detects can have moderate impact on the security of the system.
If misconfigurations are found, attackers may be able to exploit them to gain unauthorized access to the phpMemcachedAdmin Panel. This can result in the exposure of sensitive information, such as cached data, server configurations, and potentially even the ability to execute commands on the affected servers.
The phpMemcachedAdmin Panel module works by sending HTTP requests to the target server and analyzing the responses. It uses specific matching conditions to identify instances of phpMemcachedAdmin that have been exposed to the internet. The module searches for specific keywords, such as "phpMemcachedAdmin" and "Execute Commands on Servers", in the response body. If these keywords are found, it indicates a potential misconfiguration.
Here is an example of an HTTP request that the module may send:
GET /path/to/phpMemcachedAdmin HTTP/1.1 Host: example.com User-Agent: Vidoc-Scanner
The module uses the following matching conditions:- Part: Body - Type: Word - Words: "phpMemcachedAdmin", "Execute Commands on Servers" - Negative: False - Condition: AND - Case-insensitive: True
By analyzing the response body and matching it against the defined conditions, the module can identify potential misconfigurations in the phpMemcachedAdmin software.
