http://www.ehacking.net/2013/11/php-vulnerability-hunter.htmlPHP is one of the most
famous, open source scripting language that is specially designed for
web development. Most of the websites are based on PHP, so the
vulnerability assessment of PHP is one of the important pillar of web
application security. There are so many automatic tools are available
that can scan a web server, database and even applications for
vulnerability but we also need to verify the code that used to
develop the particular website and for this purpose we have PHP
Vulnerability Hunter.






What is PHP Vulnerability
Hunter ?






PHP Vulnerability Hunter
is an whitebox fuzz testing tool capable of detected several classes
of vulnerabilities in PHP web applications.






How It is Different ?






While most web application
fuzzers rely on the user to specify application inputs, PHP
vulnerability hunter uses a combination of static and dynamic
analysis to automatically map the target application. Because it
works by instrumenting application, PHP Vulnerability Hunter can
detect inputs that are not referenced in the forms of the rendered
page.

Scan Phases






Initialization
Phase

During this phase, interesting
function calls within each code file are hooked, and if code coverage
is enabled the code is annotated. Static analysis is performed on the
code to detect inputs.

Scan Phase


This
is where the bugs are uncovered. PHP Vulnerability Hunter iterates
through its different scan plugins and plugin modes, scanning every
file within the targeted application. Each time a page is requested,
dynamic analysis is performed to discover new inputs and bugs.
