docker-compose.yml exposure

docker-compose.yml exposure

Attacker can get unauthorized access of Docker Compose configuration files.

Security Misconfiguration (SM)

"Docker Compose.yml Exposure refers to the vulnerability where Docker Compose configuration files, such as docker-compose.yml and related variants, are exposed due to misconfiguration. Unauthorized access to these files can reveal sensitive information about the containerized application, including its services, configurations, and version details. Attackers can exploit this exposure to identify weaknesses, manipulate container settings, and potentially compromise the security of the application's environment. Promptly addressing this vulnerability is essential to prevent unauthorized access, protect sensitive data, and maintain the overall security of the containerized application."

How this template works

APIs Selection

The API selection filters in this template specify the criteria for selecting the APIs to be tested. In this case, the filters include the response code range (between 200 and 299) and the extraction of the "urlVar" variable from the URL.

Execute request

The execute section of the template defines the type of request to be executed, which is a single request in this case. It also specifies the modifications to be made to the URL using the "urlPaths" word list, and enables following redirects.

Validation

The validation section sets the criteria for validating the response of the executed request. It checks that the response code is equal to 200 and that the response payload contains both the "version" and "services" keywords.
