What is the "tumblr takeover detection?" module?

The "tumblr takeover detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in the Tumblr platform. It focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could allow unauthorized access or control over Tumblr accounts or content. This module has a high severity level, indicating the potential impact of a successful takeover.

This module was authored by pdteam and philippedelteil.


A successful takeover of a Tumblr account or content can have significant consequences. It can lead to unauthorized access to personal information, manipulation of content, or even complete control over the account. This can result in privacy breaches, reputational damage, and potential harm to users.

How does the module work?

The "tumblr takeover detection" module works by analyzing specific conditions and patterns in the responses received from the Tumblr platform. It uses a combination of matching conditions to identify potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that could indicate a takeover possibility.

One of the matching conditions used in this module is the absence of specific error messages, such as "Whatever you were looking for doesn't currently exist at this address" or "There's nothing here." These messages often indicate that a Tumblr account or content has been removed or does not exist.

Additionally, the module checks if the host does not contain certain strings, such as "," "," or "" This condition helps identify potential domain spoofing or redirection attempts that could be used in a takeover attack.

While the exact HTTP request templates used by the module are not provided, they are designed to interact with the Tumblr platform and retrieve responses for analysis.

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 and detection of various vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and software fingerprints.
