After applying a change, only the surroundings of the found fingerprint is recorded and sent back to Radar Security Center. This limits the report size and optimizes data processing.

Version 2.9.0, released March 07, 2018

New features and improvements:

  • Forceful browsing feature implemented:
      • Four plugins (that can report findings) responsible for various variants:
        • Common directories – looks for common directory names (only inside the root of the site)
        • Common files – looks for common file names (only inside the root of the site)
        • Backup directories – looks for some backups of directories, where directory names are generated dynamically from current crawling context (current resource)
        • Backup files – looks for some backups of files, where file names are generated dynamically from current crawling context (current resource)
      • The final report includes at most 20 findings from each forceful browser, but all findings are listed in the log file
      • Crawlable findings (that can be hit by crawling) of forceful browsing are not reported
      • Only confirmed findings are taken into account for further processing

    Some other forceful browsing behavior was extracted from code and modeled explicitly as plugins (these cannot report findings, only generate new requests):

    • IntermediatePaths – generates requests for intermediate paths of the current request
    • GetWithoutParamsFromPost – generates a GET request without any parameters (neither post parameters nor query string parameters)
    • GetWithParamsFromPost – generates GET requests with query string parameters instead of post parameters
    • Every forceful browser plugin can be switched on and off independently (as every plugin)
  • All attacking plugins report the execution path inside the Finding field
  • Execution path items are cut carefully (if needed) to avoid discarding important information (e.g. the parameter that is just attacked)
  • Improved the handling of query string parameters:
    • Duplicate parameters are handled (injected) correctly
    • More reliable and natural API to ease the creation of new plugins
  • Some hardcoded parameters were moved into configuration (not visible in the Radar GUI for now)
    • FormParamsExcludedFromAttacks – form (post) parameters that should not be attacked
    • CookiesExcludedFromAttacks – cookies that should not be attacked
    • HeadersAttacked – headers that should be attacked
  • Refactoring that aims to clean up the scanner model and make further development easier

Fixed issues:

  • Fixed generation of separate requests from every form select/radio value
  • Vulnerability checks are done with respect to response body only (without headers)
  • If auth validation request is not present in recordings, then it is not set to the login request

Version 2.8.4, released January 26, 2018
