Example text

See Chapter 8 for a discussion of common attacks and countermeasures against web-based administration ports. Don’t overlook port scanning—many web applications are compromised via inappropriate services running on web servers or other servers adjacent to web application servers in the DMZ. Rather than reiterating in detail these methodologies that are only partially relevant to web application assessment, we recommend that readers interested in a more expansive discussion consult the other editions of the Hacking Exposed series (see the “References & Further Reading” section at the end of this chapter for more information), and we’ll move on to aspects of infrastructure profiling that are more directly relevant to web applications.

Figure 1-10 shows the results of overflow testing using Burp Intruder. Burp Intruder lends itself well to fuzz-testing (see Chapter 10) and denial-of-service testing using its Ignore Response mode, but it isn’t well suited for more exacting work where individual, specifically crafted insertions are required. Google Ratproxy Google’s announcement of the release of its first web security tool in July 2008 made waves in the security community. The utility was reportedly used internally at Google before its release, so many anticipated it would provide web security auditing capabilities at a level of sophistication and scale befitting the company that released it.

For example, if the target server uses HTTPS, a tool like SSLProxy, stunnel, or openssl is required to proxy that protocol in front of netcat (see “References & Further Reading” in this chapter for links to these utilities). As we’ve seen in this chapter, there are numerous tools that automatically handle basic HTTP/S housekeeping, which requires manual intervention when using netcat. Generally, we recommend using other tools discussed in this chapter for web app security testing. Older Tools HTTP hacking tools come and go and surge and wane in popularity.
