Basic auth Detection Scanner Detail

HTTP basic authentication represents a mechanism of challenge and response to help the server make a request authentication from a client, passing the User ID and password in the URL as the standard HTTP “Authorization” header. For example: https://username:[email protected]/example-page.php.


If remote web server contains web pages that are protected by 'Basic' authentication over cleartext, an attacker eavesdropping the traffic might obtain logins and passwords of valid users.
