Use Netsparker


A pretty cool tool was released a while back called w3af ( Web Application Attack and Audit Framework ), a fully automated auditing and exploiting framework for the web. This framework has been in development for almost a year and has the following features:

Audit

  • SQL injection detection
  • XSS detection
  • SSI detection
  • Local file include detection
  • Remote file include detection
  • Buffer Overflow detection
  • Format String bugs detection
  • OS Commanding detection
  • Response Splitting detection
  • LDAP Injection detection
  • Basic Authentication bruteforce
  • File upload inside webroot
  • htaccess LIMIT misconfiguration
  • SSL certificate validation
  • XPATH injection detection
  • unSSL (HTTPS documents can be fetched using HTTP)

Discovery

  • Pykto, a nikto port to python
  • Hmap, http fingerprinting.
  • fingerGoogle, finds valid user accounts in google.
  • googleSpider, a spider that uses google.
  • webSpider, a classic web spider.
  • robotsReader
  • urlFuzzer
  • serverHeader, fetches server header
  • allowedMethods, gets a list of allowed HTTP methods.
  • crossDomain, get and parse the flash file crossdomain.xml
  • error404page, generate a regular expression to match 404 pages.
  • sitemapReader, read googles sitemap.xml and parse it.
  • spiderMan, using a localproxy and a human, find new URLs for auditing.
  • webDiff, find differences between a local and a remote directory.
  • wsdlFinder, find and parse WSDL and DISCO files.

The framework is extended using plug-ins and is completely written in Python.

    So far its been easy to install all the libs in Kubuntu. I like all the toys, and I haven’t hit a bug yet!! This might be a bit too easy…

    I wonder when they are going to get out of beta?
