The "Transmission Dashboard - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the Transmission dashboard, a web interface for the Transmission project. This module focuses on identifying potential misconfigurations or vulnerabilities related to the Transmission dashboard. It is a medium severity module that can help users identify security issues in their Transmission installations.
If a misconfiguration or vulnerability is detected in the Transmission dashboard, it could potentially expose sensitive information or allow unauthorized access to the dashboard. This could lead to unauthorized control or manipulation of the Transmission project, compromising the integrity and security of the system.
The "Transmission Dashboard - Detect" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/transmission/web/" path. It then applies matching conditions to the response to determine if the Transmission dashboard is present. The matching conditions include checking for specific words in the response body, such as "The Transmission Project" and "Transmission Web Interface," as well as checking for the presence of the word "Transmission" in the server header.
Here is an example of the HTTP request sent by the module:
GET /transmission/web/ HTTP/1.1 Host: [target_host]
The module uses an "or" condition for the matching conditions, meaning that if any of the conditions are met, the module will consider the Transmission dashboard to be present.
By detecting the Transmission dashboard, this module helps users identify potential misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers. It provides valuable information for securing and protecting Transmission installations.
