Spring Boot Beans Actuator Exposed

Spring Boot Beans Actuator Exposed

Spring Boot Beans Actuator Exposed Misconfiguration.

Security Misconfiguration (SM)

The Spring Boot Beans Actuator Exposed misconfiguration occurs when the Actuator endpoint, which provides information about application beans, is accessible to unauthorized users. This misconfiguration can lead to potential security risks as sensitive information, such as bean details, dependencies, and scopes, can be exposed. It falls under the Security Misconfiguration category with a low severity level. Proper access control and secure configuration of the Actuator endpoints are crucial to prevent unauthorized access and protect sensitive information.

How this template works

APIs Selection

The API selection filters in this template specify the criteria for selecting the API to be tested. In this case, the filters include checking the response code to be greater than or equal to 200 and less than 300, and extracting the URL from the response to be used in the subsequent request.

Execute request

The execute section defines the type of request to be executed, which is a single request in this case. It also specifies the request to be made by modifying the URL variable extracted from the previous response. The modified URL is appended with "/actuator/beans" to access the Spring Boot Beans Actuator endpoint.

Validation

The validation section defines the expected response code and payload to validate the success of the request. In this template, the response code is expected to be 200, indicating a successful request. The response payload is checked to contain specific attributes such as "type", "beans", "dependencies", and "scope" to ensure that the Actuator endpoint is providing the expected information.
