Wapiti allows you to audit the security of your web applications.
It performs "black-box" scans, i.e. it does not study the source code of the application but it will scan the webpages of the deployed webapp, looking for scripts and forms where it can inject data.
Once it gets this list, Wapiti acts like a fuzzer, injecting payloads to see if a script is vulnerable.
Wapiti can detect the following vulnerabilities :
Wapiti is able to differentiate punctual and permanent XSS vulnerabilities.
Wapiti prints a warning everytime it founds a script allowing HTTP uploads.
A warning is also issued when a HTTP 500 code is returned (useful for ASP/IIS)
Wapiti does not rely on a vulnerability database like Nikto do, although it integrates its database as a type of attack since the version 2.2.1
Wapiti aims to discover unknown vulnerabilities in web applications.
It does not provide a GUI for the moment and you must use it from a terminal.
Wapiti is able to create complete reports that include all the found vulnerabilities and related information in order to help to fix them. Take a look at the README file.
Wapiti-2.2.1 - A web application vulnerability scanner Usage: python wapiti.py http://server.com/base/url/ [options] Supported options are: -s
--start To specify an url to start with -x --exclude To exclude an url from the scan (for example logout scripts) You can also use a wildcard (*) Example : -x "http://server/base/?page=*&module=test" or -x http://server/base/admin/* to exclude a directory -p --proxy To specify a proxy Exemple: -p http://proxy:port/ -c --cookie To use a cookie -t --timeout To fix the timeout (in seconds) -a --auth Set credentials for HTTP authentication Doesn't work with Python 2.4 -r --remove Remove a parameter from URLs -n --nice Define a limit of urls to read with the same pattern Use this option to prevent endless loops Must be greater than 0 -m --module Set the modules and HTTP methods to use for attacks. Example: -m "-all,xss:get,exec:post" -u --underline Use color to highlight vulnerables parameters in output -v --verbose Set the verbosity level 0: quiet (default), 1: print each url, 2: print every attack -f --reportType Set the type of the report xml: Report in XML format html: Report in HTML format -o
