Summary0000597: Arachni v0.4.5.1-0.4.2

There's a new version of Arachni, an Open Source, modular and
high-performance Web Application Security Scanner Framework written in Ruby.

Brief list of changes:

  • Optimized pattern matching to use less resources by grouping patterns to only
    be matched against the per-platform payloads. Bottom line, pattern matching
    operations have been greatly reduced overall and vulnerabilities can be used
    to fingerprint the remote platform.
  • Modules
    • Path traversal (path_traversal)
      • Updated to use more generic signatures.
      • Added dot-truncation for MS Windows payloads.
      • Moved non-traversal payloads to the file_inclusion module.
    • File inclusion (file_inclusion) — Extracted from path_traversal.
      • Uses common server-side files and errors to identify issues.
    • SQL Injection (sqli) — Added support for the following databases:
      • Firebird
      • SAP Max DB
      • Sybase
      • Frontbase
      • IngresDB
      • HSQLDB
      • MS Access
    • localstart_asp — Checks if localstart.asp is accessible.
  • Plugins — Added:
    • Uncommon headers (uncommon_headers) — Logs uncommon headers.
