What is the "Unauthenticated Lansweeper Instance?"

The "Unauthenticated Lansweeper Instance" module is designed to detect misconfigurations in the Lansweeper software. Lansweeper is a network inventory and asset management tool used by organizations to gather information about their network infrastructure. This module focuses on identifying instances of Lansweeper that can be accessed without authentication, which poses a significant security risk.

This module has a severity level of high, indicating the potential impact of an unauthenticated Lansweeper instance on an organization's security posture.


An unauthenticated Lansweeper instance can expose sensitive information about an organization's network infrastructure to unauthorized individuals. This includes details about devices, software, and configurations, which can be leveraged by attackers to plan and execute targeted attacks. Additionally, an unauthenticated Lansweeper instance may indicate a misconfiguration or oversight in the organization's security practices, highlighting potential vulnerabilities in their network.

How the module works?

The "Unauthenticated Lansweeper Instance" module works by sending a GET request to the "/Default.aspx" path of the target Lansweeper instance. It then checks the response content for the presence of the phrase "Main page - Lansweeper" using a word matching condition. If the phrase is found, the module considers the instance to be unauthenticated.

This module leverages the Vidoc platform's capabilities to perform targeted scanning and identify instances of Lansweeper that lack proper authentication. By detecting these misconfigurations, organizations can take appropriate measures to secure their Lansweeper instances and protect their network infrastructure.
