What is the "vend takeover detection?" module?

The "vend takeover detection" module is designed to detect potential takeover vulnerabilities in the Vend software. Vend is a cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) and retail management platform used by businesses worldwide. This module focuses on identifying misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could potentially lead to a takeover of the Vend system.

This module has a severity level of high, indicating that the identified vulnerabilities could have a significant impact on the security and functionality of the Vend software.

The original author of this module is pdteam.


If a takeover vulnerability is successfully exploited, an attacker could gain unauthorized access to the Vend system. This could potentially result in unauthorized access to sensitive customer data, financial information, or the ability to manipulate sales and inventory records. It is crucial to address any identified vulnerabilities promptly to prevent potential security breaches and protect the integrity of the Vend platform.

How does the module work?

The "vend takeover detection" module utilizes HTTP request templates and matching conditions to identify potential takeover vulnerabilities in the Vend software. It performs various checks to detect misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers.

One example of an HTTP request used by this module could be:

GET / HTTP/1.1

The module then evaluates the response received from the target system against specific matching conditions. In this case, it checks for the presence of the phrase "Looks like you've traveled too far into cyberspace." in the response body. If this condition is met, it indicates a potential vulnerability that requires further investigation and remediation.

By analyzing the HTTP responses and applying the defined matching conditions, the module aims to identify any indications of a takeover vulnerability in the Vend software.
