Package nikto

Web server scanner

Nikto is an Open Source (GPL) web server scanner which performs comprehensive
tests against web servers for multiple items, including over 7000 potentially
dangerous files/programs, checks for outdated versions of over 1250 servers,
and version specific problems on over 270 servers.
    It also checks for server configuration items such as the presence of
multiple index files, HTTP server options, and will attempt to identify
installed web servers and software. Scan items and plugins are frequently
updated and can be automatically updated.

Nikto is not designed as a stealthy tool. It will test a web server in the
quickest time possible, and is obvious in log files or to an IPS/IDS.
However, there is support for LibWhisker's anti-IDS methods in case you want
to give it a try (or test your IDS system).

Version: 2.5.0
