Arachni Web Application Security Scanner Framework Tutorial

Web application hacking is very common and there are so many tools that can exploit the web application vulnerabilities like SQL injection, XSS, RFI, LFI and others. The vary first step is to find the vulnerabilities on web application. Arachni is a feature-full, modular, high-performance Ruby framework aimed towards helping penetration testers and administrators evaluate the security of web applications. So in this article I will show you how to get and install arachni and how to launch your first attack against a web application.


Since I am on Linux backtrack 5 R1 but you can use other Linux distribution like ubuntu. Start the web mode of arachni.

root@bt:~/Downloads/arachni-v0.4.0.2-cde# sh arachni_web

Now the question is how to edit Dispatchers of Arachni because without dispatchers arachni does not work.

root@bt:~/Downloads/arachni-v0.4.0.2-cde# sh arachni_rpcd
Now click on the plug ins to choose the best plug ins then click on the module to select and unselected modules depends on your need.
Now click on the start scan to run your first scan enter the URL of the target web application then simply start the attack, after sometimes you need to evaluate the report to get the vulnerabilities.
