Subject: WAS Executor

Hi folks,

An initial stab at the WAS Executor is available as part of WebScarab, and
can be downloaded from http://home.intekom.co.za/rdawes/WebScarab.jar

You will need to have certain libraries from the Jakarta commons, such as
the digester, logging, etc.

It does not have an entry point via the GUI, yet.

You can run the WASExecutor using a command similar to the following:

java -cp webscarab.jar org.owasp.webscarab.plugin.was.WASExecutor
http://www.target:port/path/file.html test.xml

At this point, it is quite rough and ready. I have had problems with the
default parser in JRE/JDK 1.4+, and had to hardcode the path to the DTD in
the xml file. Hopefully we can sort that out before too long.


Care about encodings. I have completely ignored the encoding attributes at
this point.
Handle request bodies. Currently it only handles GET requests, and does not
try to build parameter lists.

It should be roughly equivalent to a whisker or nikto scan for existence of

The source code is in CVS on sourceforge under webscarab, as well as being
included in the WebScarab.jar file, so it should be relatively easy for you
to play with it and modify it if desired.

Please let me know if you have trouble getting it to work.
