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.
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.
Fresh off the GitHub repository – Leviathan, an open source, wide-range security audit toolkit that helps you with service discovery, brute force, SQL injection detection and running custom exploit. One of the guys behind this project is Utku Sen. If you remember he was the one who wrote open source ransomware – EDA2 and Hidden Tear.
There are a lot of WordPress security tools out there such as the WPScan, vulnerability scanner. Now, there is an addition – WPForce, which I consider is a more offensive tool that performs brute force attempts against a targeted WordPress installation.
