WAFW00F identifies and fingerprints Web Application Firewall (WAF) products. How does it work? To do its magic, WAFW00F does the following: Sends a _ normal _ HTTP request and analyses the response; this identifies a number of WAF solutions. If that is not successful, it sends a number of (potentially malicious) HTTP requests and uses simple logic to deduce which WAF it is. If that is also not successful, it analyses the responses previously returned and uses another simple algorithm to guess if a WAF or security solution is actively responding to our attacks. What does it detect? It detects a number of WAFs. To view which WAFs it is able to detect run WAFW00F with the -l option. At the time of writing the output is as follows: $ wafw00f -l ______ / ( Woof! ) ______/ ) ,, ) (_ .-. – _______ ( |__| ()“; |==|_______) .)|__| / (‘ /| ( |__| ( / ) / | . |__| (_)_)) / | |__| WAFW00F – Web Application Firewall Detection Tool Can test for these WAFs: BlockDoS (BlockDoS) Armor Defense (Armor) ACE XML Gateway (Cisco) Malcare (Inactiv) RSFirewall (RSJoomla!)
