DirBuster – Finding Hidden Directories

DirBuster by OWASP

So you learned how to fusk for files, but that doesn’t always work. Well that’s okay! I’ve got another fun trick up my sleeve. Enter DirBuster. DirBuster is a multi threaded java application designed to brute force directories and files names on web/application servers. Often is the case now of what looks like a web server in a state of default installation is actually not, and has pages and applications hidden within. DirBuster attempts to find these. DirBuster does essentially what a fusker does with sequential numbers but instead uses a list based attack. That being said, you are only as good as your list! Check out DirBuster by OWASP over at http://owasp.org. Also! DirBuster is only used for identifying files, not exploiting them.
