Description

XAMPP is a popular Apache distribution that bundles MySQL, PHP, and Perl together with the popular Apache server for rapid deployment of application servers.

Certain versions of XAMPP came with a remotely accessible web status page that is not password protected. This web status page allows any remote user to view the information about important system configuration, including MySQL account information, phpMyAdmin account information, FTP, and POP3 service configurations.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
