screamingCSS v1.00 -- < January 12, 2002 > by David deVitry [ [email protected] ] This program is simple a modified screamingCobra with a simple detector for Cross Site Scripting vulnerablities. See: A clean result from this program does not mean that a site is free from CSS and a positive result should be tested by hand. Requirements wget and perl5 replace screamingCobra with screamingCSS for now. ------------------ Original README ----------------------- screamingCobra v1.03 -- < January 11, 2002 > by Samy Kamkar [[email protected]] usage: screamingCobra.pl [-e] [-i] [-s|-v] < ;[:port] [/start/page] ======================= == TABLE OF CONTENTS == ======================= 1.

Supported Operating Systems ======================= _____________________________ 1. __ WHAT IS SCREAMING COBRA __ ============================= Any CGI that doesn't check arguements that are passed to it over the web are possibly vulnerable to attacks which allow a malicious user get read access to almost any file on that system, if not access to execute programs. screamingCobra is almost always able to find those bugs REMOTELY due to the common errors programmers make. screamingCobra is an application for remote vulnerability discovery in ANY UNKNOWN web applications such as CGIs and PHP pages. Simply put, it attemps to find vulernabilities in all web applications on a host without knowing anything about the applications. Modern CGI scanners scan a host for CGIs with known vulnerabilities. screamingCobra is able to 'find' the actual vulnerabilities in ANY CGI, whether it has been discovered before or not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
