Laravel Debug Mode Enabled

Laravel Debug Mode Enabled

Laravel debug mode enabled misconfiguration can expose sensitive information, potentially leading to security vulnerabilities.

Security Misconfiguration (SM)

The Laravel Debug Mode Enabled misconfiguration occurs when the Laravel framework is configured to run in debug mode, allowing detailed error information to be displayed in responses. This can expose sensitive information, such as full file paths, database details, and stack traces, to potential attackers. By analyzing the debug output, attackers can gain insights into the application's internals and potentially exploit vulnerabilities. This misconfiguration falls under the Security Misconfiguration category and has a low severity level. Disabling debug mode in production environments is essential to prevent information disclosure and enhance the application's security posture.

How this template works

APIs Selection

The API selection filters in this template specify the criteria for selecting the desired API endpoint. In this case, the filters include the response code range (between 200 and 299) and the extraction of a URL variable from the response.

Execute request

The execute section of the template defines the type of request to be executed and provides instructions for modifying the request. In this example, a single request is made with the DELETE method, and the URL is modified using the extracted URL variable.

Validation

The validation section defines the criteria for validating the response payload. In this template, the response payload is expected to contain specific keywords related to Laravel debug mode, such as "laravel," "debug," "stack," and "trace." If the response payload meets these criteria, the validation is considered successful.
