Web Application Scanning

  • Web Application Scanning

With the uptake of cloud computing and the advancements in browser technology, web applications and web services have become a core component of many business processes, and therefore a lucrative target for attackers. Over 70% of websites and web applications, however, contain vulnerabilities that could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data, credit cards, customer information and Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

Cyber criminals are focusing their efforts on exploiting weaknesses in web applications such as eCommerce platforms, blogs, login pages and other dynamic content. Insecure web applications and web services not only provide attackers access to backend databases but also allow them to perform illegal activities using compromised sites.

Web application attacks are carried out over HTTP and HTTPS; the same protocols that are used to deliver content to legitimate users. Yet web application attacks, both on free open-source software, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla!, as well as commercial or custom-built applications, can have repercussions that are the same, or worse than traditional network-based attacks.

Damocles offers comprehensive web application scanning services which can be done in two ways

Manually using the custom Python scripts or modified exploits from ExploitDB

Automatically using web application vulnerability scanners, binary analysis tools and proxy tools

Vulnerability Scanner

A fundamental process during any scan is the scanner’s ability to properly crawl an application, no matter what web technology it is written in. Vulnerability Scanner features DeepScan Technology.

  • An HTML5 crawling and scanning engine that fully replicates user interaction inside of a browser by executing and analyzing JavaScript.

  • DeepScan allows accurate crawling of AJAX-heavy client-side Single Page Applications (SPAs) that leverage technologies such as AngularJS, EmberJS and Google Web Toolkit.

  • DeepScan can understand and interact with complex web technologies such as: AJAX, SOAP/ WDSL, SOAP/WCF, WADL, XML, JSON, Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and CRUD operations.

  • DeepScan has been further optimized to analyze websites and web applications developed in Ruby on Rails and Java Frameworks including Java Server Faces (JSF), Spring and Struts.
