What is the "Shopify Takeover Detection" module?

The "Shopify Takeover Detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in Shopify websites. Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows businesses to create and manage their online stores. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could potentially lead to a takeover of a Shopify store.

This module has a severity level of high, indicating that the identified vulnerabilities could have a significant impact on the security and functionality of the affected Shopify stores.

This module was authored by pdteam and philippedelteil.


If a takeover vulnerability is successfully exploited, an attacker could gain unauthorized access to the affected Shopify store. This could result in various consequences, including:

- Unauthorized access to customer data - Manipulation of product listings and pricing - Disruption of business operations - Potential financial loss

How does the module work?

The "Shopify Takeover Detection" module works by performing various checks and matching conditions to identify potential takeover vulnerabilities. It uses a combination of HTTP request templates and matching conditions to analyze the responses from the target Shopify store.

One of the matching conditions used by this module is to check if the response contains specific phrases such as "To finish setting up your new web address, go to your domain settings, click 'Connect existing domain'" or "Sorry, this shop is currently unavailable." If these phrases are found in the response, it indicates a potential misconfiguration or vulnerability.

Additionally, the module checks for the presence of the phrase "shop-not-found" in the response, which could indicate a potential takeover vulnerability.

The module also includes DSL (Domain Specific Language) conditions to exclude known Shopify domains, such as "" and "", from the analysis.

By analyzing the responses and applying the matching conditions, the module can identify potential takeover vulnerabilities in Shopify stores.
