Laravel DEfault Homepage Enabled

Laravel DEfault Homepage Enabled

Laravel Default Homepage Enabled Misconfiguration.

Security Misconfiguration (SM)

The Laravel Default Homepage Enabled misconfiguration occurs when the default homepage is enabled in a production environment. The default homepage typically contains links to documentation, tutorials, news, and other resources, exposing sensitive information about the Laravel framework and the underlying PHP technology stack. This information can be valuable for attackers looking for vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the system. To reduce the attack surface and protect sensitive details, it is recommended to disable or customize the default homepage in production environments.

How this template works

APIs Selection

The template uses API selection filters to 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 the URL variable.

Execute request

The template defines a single execution request that modifies the URL using the extracted URL variable. This allows for dynamic URL modification based on the response from the API selection filters.

Validation

The template validates the response payload by checking if it contains specific keywords such as "Documentation," "Laracasts," "Laravel News," "Vibrant Ecosystem," "Laravel," and "PHP." If all of these keywords are present in the response payload, the validation is considered successful.
