Spring Boot Thread Dump Actuator Exposed

Spring Boot Thread Dump Actuator Exposed

Spring Boot Thread Dump Actuator Exposed Misconfiguration

Security Misconfiguration (SM)

The Spring Boot Thread Dump Actuator Exposed misconfiguration occurs when the Actuator endpoint responsible for providing thread dump information is accessible to unauthorized users. This misconfiguration can lead to security risks as sensitive information about running threads, including thread names, stack traces, and thread states, can be exposed. Attackers can potentially use this information to gather insights into the application's execution environment and exploit vulnerabilities. It falls under the Security Misconfiguration category with a low severity level. Proper access control and secure configuration of the Actuator endpoints are necessary to prevent unauthorized access to thread dump information.

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 checking the response code to be between 200 and 299 and extracting the URL from the response.

Execute request

The execute section defines the type of request to be executed and provides the necessary details. In this template, a single request is made to modify the URL by appending "/actuator/threaddump" to the extracted URL.

Validation

The validation section specifies the expected response code and payload to validate the success of the request. In this template, the response code is expected to be 200, and the response payload should contain the keywords "threads" and "threadName".
