What is the "SmarterStats Setup Exposure" module?

The "SmarterStats Setup Exposure" module is a test case designed to detect misconfigurations in the SmarterStats software. SmarterStats is a web analytics tool that provides detailed insights into website traffic and visitor behavior. This module focuses on identifying potential security vulnerabilities related to the setup of SmarterStats.

This module has a high severity level, indicating that the identified misconfigurations can pose a significant risk to the security of the SmarterStats installation.

If the "SmarterStats Setup Exposure" module detects misconfigurations, it indicates that the SmarterStats installation may be vulnerable to unauthorized access or other security threats. These misconfigurations could potentially expose sensitive information or allow attackers to gain unauthorized control over the SmarterStats system.

How does the module work?

The "SmarterStats Setup Exposure" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/Admin/frmWelcome.aspx" path of the target SmarterStats installation. It then applies a set of matching conditions to determine if the installation is misconfigured.

The matching conditions for this module are as follows:

- The response body must contain the words "SmarterStats - SmarterStats" and "Create System Administrator". - The response headers must include the word "text/html". - The HTTP status code must be 200 (OK).

If all of these conditions are met, the module considers the SmarterStats installation to have a misconfiguration.

It is important to note that this module is just one test case among many that the Vidoc platform uses to perform scanning and identify potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations in web applications.
