What is the "Sidekiq Dashboard Panel - Detect?"

The "Sidekiq Dashboard Panel - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the Sidekiq Dashboard panel. Sidekiq is a popular background job processing library for Ruby applications. The module focuses on identifying the Sidekiq Dashboard, which provides a web interface for monitoring and managing Sidekiq jobs.

This module is classified as a medium severity detection module. It helps identify instances where the Sidekiq Dashboard panel is exposed, which could potentially lead to unauthorized access or information disclosure.

This module was authored by dhiyaneshDK.


If the Sidekiq Dashboard panel is exposed to unauthorized users, it could potentially allow them to gain insights into the background job processing system, view sensitive information, or even manipulate job queues. This could lead to security breaches, data leaks, or disruption of critical processes.

How does the module work?

The "Sidekiq Dashboard Panel - Detect" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/sidekiq" path. It then applies matching conditions to determine if the Sidekiq Dashboard panel is present.

The matching conditions used by this module are:

- Check if the response body contains the HTML title tag "<title>Sidekiq</title>". - Verify that the HTTP response status is 200 (OK).

If both matching conditions are met, the module considers the Sidekiq Dashboard panel to be detected.

Example HTTP request:

GET /sidekiq

The module then analyzes the response to determine if it matches the expected conditions.

It is important to note that this module only detects the presence of the Sidekiq Dashboard panel and does not perform any further actions or exploit any vulnerabilities.
