My last post about WordPress security was WPSeku, the simple WordPress security scanner. This post is about WPXF, short for the WordPress Exploit Framework, which will help you go one step further and perform penetration tests on WordPress powered websites.
There are a lot of open source WordPress security scanners out there right now and WPSeku is one more of them. Since it’s release about a month ago, it has a few static cross-site scripting, local file inclusion and SQL injection strings which it tries to leverage while scanning a website.
A problem with remote web application vulnerability scanners is that sometimes they have false positives. The only way to get good results is by launching an actual exploit, which if not treated with caution can lead to problems with the web application itself. This is where pyfiscan comes into picture and helps you perform a non-intrusive vulnerability scan on your own web application.
This post is about a functionality which was untill today was not automated, yet very important in real world and bug bounty scenarios. The name is – PwnBack, a open source Burp Extender plugin, coded in JAVA which leverages the Wayback search engine and generates a sitemap accordingly.
This is a short post about howmanypeoplearearound, an open source tool in Python that can help you identify the number of people in the vicinity of your WiFi connection.
A lot many good things are being done in Docker. Jackhammer is another good example of this. The authors have gone ahead and put almost everything you would need for vulnerability assessment and vulnerability management, dockerized it, made it an all-in-one tool and put it up for us to use! A few other security related docker projects can be found here.
I stumbled upon this tool when trying to find more Docker security projects – Cameradar. You can use this tool post exploitation just for the fun, or use it in your own network and check for unauthorized CCTV installations. You can also use it to test the security of your existing camera setup.
