Vulmap – Web Vulnerability Scanning And Verification Tools

  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2021

Vulnerability Scanning is the process of testing the target domain for various vulnerabilities in Web containers, Web servers, Web middleware, and CMS, and other Web programs, and has vulnerability exploitation functions. Testing each CVE against the target domain manually is not possible as manual testing takes a lot of time. So automated testing is the approach through which we can test the different CVEs against the target domain more quickly. Vulmap is an automated script developed in the Python Language which tests for various CVEs against the target domain. Vulmap is open-source and free to use the tool. Vulmap supports the testing of multiple target domains parallelly. Vulmap supports saving the results in the text and JSON format for further uses. 

Note: Make Sure You have Python Installed on your System, as this is a python-based tool. Click to check the Installation process Python Installation Steps on Linux

Installation of Vulmap Tool on Kali Linux OS

Step 4: All the dependencies have been installed in your Kali Linux operating system. Now use the following command to run the tool and check the help section.

python3 vulmap.py -h

Working with Vulmap Tool on Kali Linux OS

Example 1: Test all vulnerabilities poc mode.

In this example, We are testing some common vulnerabilities against the target domain geeksforgeeks.org.

python3 vulmap.py -u http://geeksforgeeks.org

Example 2: Display the list of supported vulnerabilities

In this example, We are displaying the list of available vulnerabilities.

python3 vulmap.py --list

Example 3: Check target domain for struts2 vuln

In this example, We are testing struts2 vulnerability against the geeksforgeeks.org domain.

python3 vulmap.py -u http://geeksforgeeks.org -a struts2

Example 4: Batch scan URLs in list.txt

In this example, We are testing a list of multiple targets at the same time.

python3 vulmap.py -f targets.txt

Example 5: Export scan results to result.txt

In this example, We are saving the results in text file format.

python3 vulmap.py -u http://facebook.com --output-text result.txt
