Express Stack Trace Enabled
Express Stack Trace Enabled Misconfiguration exposes sensitive error details, potentially aiding attackers in identifying vulnerabilities and exploiting the application.
Security Misconfiguration (SM)
How this template works
The template uses API selection filters to specify criteria for selecting the APIs to be tested. In this case, the filters include the response code filter, which selects APIs with response codes between 200 and 299, and the URL filter, which extracts the URL from the response and assigns it to the variable "urlVar".
The template uses the execute section to define the execution of a single request. It specifies the type of execution as "single" and includes a request with a modification to the URL using the value of the "urlVar" variable. This modified URL is used to send the request.
The template includes a validation section to validate the response payload. It uses the "contains_all" validation rule to check if the response payload contains specific strings, such as "NotFoundError: Not Found" and "at Function.handle". If the response payload contains all the specified strings, the validation is considered successful.
