What is the "surveygizmo takeover detection?"

The "surveygizmo takeover detection" module is designed to detect potential takeovers in the SurveyGizmo software. Takeovers can occur when there are misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in the software that could allow unauthorized access or control by malicious actors. This module focuses on identifying such issues and assessing their severity.

The severity of this module is classified as high, indicating that the identified takeovers can have significant impacts on the security and integrity of the SurveyGizmo software.

This module was authored by pdteam.


A successful takeover of the SurveyGizmo software can lead to unauthorized access to sensitive data, manipulation of survey responses, and potential disruption of survey operations. This can have serious consequences for organizations relying on SurveyGizmo for data collection and analysis.

How does the module work?

The "surveygizmo takeover detection" module works by analyzing the HTTP responses from the targeted SurveyGizmo instances and applying specific matching conditions to identify potential takeovers. It uses a combination of DSL (Domain Specific Language) and word-based matching conditions to filter out false positives and focus on relevant indicators of misconfigurations or vulnerabilities.

For example, one of the matching conditions used in this module is to check if the "Host" header in the HTTP response is not an IP address. This helps identify cases where the software may be misconfigured to allow access from unauthorized hosts.

Another matching condition checks for the presence of the "data-html-name" word in the HTTP response. This can indicate potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations related to HTML elements in the SurveyGizmo software.

By applying these and other matching conditions, the module aims to accurately detect and report potential takeovers in the SurveyGizmo software.

It is important to note that this module does not perform any actual takeovers or exploit vulnerabilities. Its purpose is solely to identify and report potential issues for further investigation and remediation.
