Automate Recon and scanning process with Vidoc. All security teams in one place
The "Portainer - Init Deploy Discovery" module is designed to detect misconfigurations in the Portainer software. Portainer is a popular tool used in the Docker ecosystem for managing containerized applications. This module focuses on the initial deployment phase of Portainer and aims to identify any vulnerabilities or weaknesses that could be exploited.
This module has a severity level of medium, indicating that the detected misconfigurations could potentially lead to security risks if left unaddressed.
If misconfigurations are found, attackers may be able to gain unauthorized access to the Portainer software, potentially compromising the security of the containerized applications managed by Portainer. This could result in data breaches, unauthorized modifications, or disruption of services.
The "Portainer - Init Deploy Discovery" module works by sending HTTP requests to the Portainer software and analyzing the responses. It checks for specific conditions that indicate misconfigurations or vulnerabilities.
One example of an HTTP request sent by this module is:
The module then applies matching conditions to the response to determine if any vulnerabilities or misconfigurations are present. The matching conditions for this module include:- All: The response must contain the phrase "No administrator account found inside the database". - Header: The response must have the header "application/json". - Status: The response status code must be 404.
If all of these conditions are met, the module will report a vulnerability, indicating that a misconfiguration has been detected in the Portainer software.
