What is the "surge takeover detection?"

The "surge takeover detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in the targeted software. It focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized control over the software. This module has a high severity level, indicating the potential impact of a successful takeover.

This module was authored by pdteam.


A successful takeover of the targeted software could result in unauthorized access, data breaches, or disruption of services. It is crucial to address any identified vulnerabilities promptly to prevent potential security incidents.

How does the module work?

The "surge takeover detection" module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to identify potential takeover vulnerabilities. It performs various checks to detect misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could lead to a takeover.

One example of an HTTP request used by this module is:

GET / HTTP/1.1

The module applies specific matching conditions to determine if the targeted software is vulnerable to a takeover. These conditions include:

- Checking if the host is not an IP address - Verifying if the response contains the phrase "project not found"

If these conditions are met, the module will flag the software as potentially vulnerable to a takeover.

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 various security issues.
