Web Application Vulnerability Scanner - Webvulscan

WebVulScan is a web application vulnerability scanner. It is a web application itself written in PHP and can be used to test remote, or local, web applications for security vulnerabilities. As a scan is running, details of the scan are dynamically updated to the user. These details include the status of the scan, the number of URLs found on the web application, the number of vulnerabilities found and details of the vulnerabilities found.

After a scan is complete, a detailed PDF report is emailed to the user. The report includes descriptions of the vulnerabilities found, recommendations and details of where and how each vulnerability was exploited.

The vulnerabilities tested by WebVulScan are:
 * Reflected Cross-Site Scripting
 * Stored Cross-Site Scripting
 * Standard SQL Injection
 * Broken Authentication using SQL Injection
 * Autocomplete Enabled on Password Fields
 * Potentially Insecure Direct Object References
 * Directory Listing Enabled
 * HTTP Banner Disclosure
 * SSL Certificate not Trusted
 * Unvalidated Redirects

WebVulScan Features:
 * Crawler: Crawls a website to identify and display all URLs belonging to the website.
 * Scanner: Crawls a website and scans all URLs found for vulnerabilities.
 * Scan History: Allows a user to view or download PDF reports of previous scans that they performed.
 * Register: Allows a user to register with the web application.
 * Login: Allows a user to login to the web application.
 * Options: Allows a user to select which vulnerabilities they wish to test for (all are enabled by default).
 * PDF Generation: Dynamically generates a detailed PDF report.
 * Report Delivery: The PDF report is emailed to the user as an attachment.

WebVulScan Installation:
Download the WebVulScan - here
NOTE: WebVulScan requires the following are installed:
A web server capable of running PHP web applications such as Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Place the folder containing the source code into the folder that your web server looks for to serve on your domain. In Apache this is the “/var/www” folder.
 * Import the database named “webvulscan.sql”, which is contained in the source code folder into your MySQL database.
 * The database credentials that the scanner is using are the “root” user with no password. If you want to change this it can be edited in “webvulscan_vx.xx/scanner/functions/databaseFunctions.php” in the connectToDb() function. The second and third parameter passed into the mysqli constructor are the username and password of a MySQL database user.  e.g. “root” and “”.
*For whatever user you are using in the connectToDb() function, you must ensure there is a corresponding database user in the database and they have sufficient privileges to read/write from/to the webvulscan database.

Once all done ... Using your browser, request “http://localhost/webvulscan_vx.xx”, where “webvulscan_vx.xx” is the folder containing the source code, and you will be brought to the homepage of the web application vulnerability scanner.
