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 will scans the web pages of the deployed web applications,
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, ...)
- Database Injection (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 a web application security auditor.
This version requires Python 2.4 or superior with the urllib2 module.
Wapiti works as a black box vulnerability scanner, that means it won't
study the source code of web applications but will work like a fuzzer,
scanning the pages of the deployed web application, ext
