inspathx – Tool For Finding Path Disclosure Vulnerabilities

Prevent Network Security Leaks with Acunetix

inspathx is a tool that uses local source tree to make requests to the URL and searches for path inclusion (Full Path Disclosure) error messages. It’s a very common problem in PHP web applications that crops up a lot.

PHP Web application developers sometimes fail to add safety checks against authentications, file inclusion etc and are prone to reveal possible sensitive information when those applications URLs are directly requested. Sometimes, it’s a clue to Local File Inclusion (LFI) vulnerability. For open-source applications, source code can be downloaded and checked to find such information.

This script will do this job.

  1. First you have to download source archived file of your desired OSS.
  2. Second, extract it.
  3. Third, feed its path to inspath

inspathx accepts the following arguments:

  • -d or –dir argument as source directory (of application)
  • -u or –url arguement as the target base URL (like http://victim.com)
  • -t or –threads argument as the number of threads concurrently to run (default is 10)

You can download inspathx via SVN here:
