Wapiti

Web application vulnerability scanner / security auditor

 

Presentation

 

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 :

 

  • File Handling Errors (Local and remote include/require, fopen, readfile...)
  • Database Injections (PHP/JSP/ASP SQL Injections and XPath Injections)
  • XSS (Cross Site Scripting) Injection
  • LDAP Injection
  • Command Execution detection (eval(), system(), passtru()...)
  • CRLF Injection (HTTP Response Splitting, session fixation...)

 

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.

-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 
--output 
	Set the name of the report file
	If the selected report type is "html", this parameter must be a directory

-i 
--continue 
	This parameter indicates Wapiti to continue with the scan from the specified

	The file is optional, if it is not specified, Wapiti takes the default file
  from \"scans\" folder.

-k 
--attack 
	This parameter indicates Wapiti to perform attacks without scanning again the
  website and following the data of this file.
