The impact of detecting the VMware HCX login panel is primarily informational. It does not indicate any immediate security risks or vulnerabilities. However, it can be used as a starting point for further security assessments and configuration reviews to ensure the proper setup and security of the VMware HCX deployment.

How does the module work?

The module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/hybridity/ui/hcx-client/index.html" path of the target. It then applies two matching conditions to determine if the VMware HCX login panel is present:

    - The module checks if the response body contains the HTML tag "<title>VMware HCX</title>". This tag is typically present in the login panel page, indicating the presence of the VMware HCX login panel. - The module also verifies that the HTTP response status code is 200, indicating a successful request.

If both matching conditions are met, the module reports the detection of the VMware HCX login panel.

Example HTTP request:

GET /hybridity/ui/hcx-client/index.html

Matching conditions:

- Response body must contain the HTML tag "<title>VMware HCX</title>" - HTTP response status code must be 200
