WPScan – WordPress Security/Vulnerability Scanner

Check Your Web Security with Acunetix

WPScan is a vulnerability scanner which checks the security of WordPress installations using a black box approach (scanning without any prior knowledge of what has been installed etc).

Features

  • Username enumeration (from author querystring and location header)
  • Weak password cracking (multithreaded)
  • Version enumeration (from generator meta tag)
  • Vulnerability enumeration (based on version)
  • Plugin enumeration (2220 most popular by default)
  • Plugin vulnerability enumeration (based on version) (todo)
  • Plugin enumeration list generation
  • Other misc WordPress checks (theme name, dir listing, …)

Requirements

WPScan requires two non native Ruby gems, typhoeus and xml-simple. It should work on both Ruby 1.8.x and 1.9.x.

The full README is available here.

You can download WPScan by checking it out from the SVN repository on Google Code:
