Nginx - Git Configuration Exposure
Nginx is vulnerable to git configuration exposure.
Security Misconfiguration (SM)
How this template works
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" from the response URL.
The execute section defines the type of request to be executed and the requests to be made. In this template, a single request is made with the URL modified using the "urlPaths" word list, which appends different paths to the "urlVar".
The validation section specifies the conditions that the response should meet to be considered valid. In this template, the response code is expected to be 200, and the response payload should contain the string '[core]'.
