The "Samba SWAT Panel - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the Samba SWAT panel. Samba SWAT is a web-based administration tool for managing Samba servers. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities related to the SWAT panel.
This module has an informative severity level, which means it provides valuable information but does not indicate a critical security issue.
The impact of detecting the Samba SWAT panel is primarily related to potential misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that may exist within the panel. By identifying the presence of the SWAT panel, system administrators can take appropriate actions to ensure the panel is properly secured and configured.
The "Samba SWAT Panel - Detect" module works by sending HTTP requests and analyzing the responses to identify specific patterns or conditions. It uses a matcher that focuses on the "header" part of the response and checks for the presence of the phrase "Basic realm="SWAT"". If this condition is met, the module considers the Samba SWAT panel to be detected.
Here is an example of an HTTP request that may be sent by the module:
GET / HTTP/1.1 Host: [target_host]
The module then evaluates the response headers to determine if the expected condition is met.
It's important to note that this module only detects the presence of the Samba SWAT panel and does not perform any further actions or modifications.
