What is the "Smartjob Takeover Detection?"

The "Smartjob Takeover Detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in job board websites. It targets job board websites that are either expired or have an invalid domain name. This module has a high severity level, indicating that if a vulnerability is found, it could have a significant impact on the security of the website.

This module was authored by pdteam.


If a takeover vulnerability is detected, an attacker could potentially gain unauthorized access to the job board website. This could lead to various malicious activities, such as manipulating job listings, stealing user data, or defacing the website.

How does the module work?

The "Smartjob Takeover Detection" module works by performing specific matching conditions on the target website. It checks if the host is not an IP address and if certain phrases indicating an expired or invalid job board website are present. If these conditions are met, the module flags the website as potentially vulnerable to a takeover.

For example, the module may send an HTTP request to the target website and analyze the response to determine if it contains the phrases:

"Job Board Is Unavailable"
"This job board website is either expired"
"This job board website is either expired or its domain name is invalid."

If any of these phrases are found, the module considers it a match and reports the vulnerability.

It's important to note that this module is just one test case within the Vidoc platform, which utilizes multiple modules to perform comprehensive scanning for various misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and software fingerprints.
