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. What is screamingCobra 2. What screamingCobra does 3. Why was screamingCobra written 4. Configuring screamingCobra 5. Command-line options 6. Vulnerabilities found in popular sites 7. 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.
