What is the "SpiderControl SCADA Web Server - Sensitive Information Exposure" module?

The "SpiderControl SCADA Web Server - Sensitive Information Exposure" module is designed to detect a vulnerability in the SpiderControl SCADA Web Server. This module focuses on identifying instances where sensitive information is exposed, which can pose a high risk to the security of the system.

This module targets the SpiderControl SCADA Web Server, a web server used in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. SCADA systems are commonly used in industrial control systems to monitor and control various processes.

The severity of this vulnerability is classified as high, indicating that it has the potential to cause significant harm if exploited.


If the SpiderControl SCADA Web Server is vulnerable to sensitive information exposure, an attacker may be able to access and retrieve sensitive data. This can include confidential system information, user credentials, or other sensitive data that should not be accessible to unauthorized individuals.

The exposure of such information can lead to further security breaches, unauthorized access, or even compromise of the entire SCADA system, potentially resulting in operational disruptions, financial losses, or safety risks.

How the module works?

The module works by sending an HTTP request to the target server and analyzing the response to determine if the SpiderControl SCADA Web Server is vulnerable to sensitive information exposure.

One of the key matching conditions used by this module is the detection of specific strings in the response body. These strings include "powered by SpiderControl," "LSWEBSERVER," and "SCWEBSERVICES." If any of these strings are found, it indicates that the SpiderControl SCADA Web Server is present and potentially vulnerable.

Additionally, the module verifies the HTTP response status code to ensure it is 200, indicating a successful request. By combining these matching conditions, the module can accurately identify instances where the SpiderControl SCADA Web Server is exposed and potentially at risk.

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