What is the "Watchguard Login Panel - Detect?"

The "Watchguard Login Panel - Detect" module is designed to detect the presence of the Watchguard login panel. This module is used to identify potential misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in the Watchguard login panel.

The Watchguard login panel is a web-based interface used for user authentication in Watchguard Technologies' products. It is an important component of the security infrastructure and any issues with its configuration can have significant implications for the overall security of the system.

This module has an informative severity level, which means it provides valuable information but does not indicate a critical vulnerability or misconfiguration.

The detection of the Watchguard login panel does not directly indicate any specific impact. However, it can help security professionals identify potential security risks or misconfigurations that may exist in the login panel. By detecting the presence of the login panel, further analysis and investigation can be conducted to ensure its proper configuration and security.

How does the module work?

The "Watchguard Login Panel - Detect" module works by sending an HTTP GET request to the "/sslvpn_logon.shtml" path of the target system. It then applies two matching conditions to determine if the Watchguard login panel is present:

    - The module checks if the response contains the words "<title>User Authentication" and "WatchGuard Technologies". This indicates that the response page is the Watchguard login panel. - The module also checks if the HTTP response status is 200, indicating a successful request. This ensures that the target system is accessible and responsive.

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