Service Simple

The Service Simple grabber tries to extract product specific information from service running on a remote address. This module is much faster than "service", since it returns less information. If you want more details, including header information for example, please use the service module

Service Simple Request Example

curl -v -L -d '{"type":"scan", "options":[{"targets":["X.X.X.X"], "ports":[{"port":80, "protocol":"tcp", "modules":["service-simple"]}]}]}' -H "X-Token:<Token>"

Service Simple Request Options

These are optional parameters that can alter the behaviour of the module. These options can be inserted into the "config" object on the request.

  • prioritize_probes - List of probe names to prioritize
    • "config":{"prioritize_probes":"SIPOptions, GetRequest, SSLSessionReq, NULL, HTTPOptions, RTSPRequest"}
  • custom_probes - List of custom probes to use
    • "config":{"custom_probes":"GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n,OPTIONS / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n"}
  • probe_rarity - Rarity level of probes used (light/probable/default/all)
    • "config":{"probe_rarity":"all"}

Contents of the fields

This module provides the following data (if available):

  • state: Information regarding the state of the connection to the target
  • state: State of the connection to the target. Possible values for this field are:

    • open: The connection was established, data was sent and the target returned any response
    • open|filtered: The connection was established, data was sent, but the target did not respond
    • closed: The connection was not established.
  • service: Information regarding the service that is likely to be running on the target

  • name: Type of service that is running
  • product: Product designation (and Vendor)
  • version: Application version number
  • device: Type of device running the service
  • ostype: Operating system running the service
  • hostname: Hostname (if any) offered by the service
  • extrainfo: Extra information extracted, can be an OS, version of a framework, etc
  • cpe: List of Common Platform Enumeration tags, if available
  • banner: Server response from which information was extracted
  • method: Method used to match or extract information from server responses. Possible values for this field are:
    • probe_matching: Server responses matched one of the expected responses for the probes that were sent
    • probe_extraction: Customized information extraction, used when server responses do not match expected responses, but have relevant information
    • probe_matching/probe_extraction: It's a mix of the previous methods, used when simple matching with expected responses does not return sufficient information
    • table_default: No information was obtained, hence the resulting service name is simply a speculation given the port number
