Class: Arachni::Plugins::Discovery

Inherits:
Arachni::Plugin::Base show all
Defined in:
components/plugins/defaults/meta/remedies/discovery.rb

Overview

Catches custom-404s that somehow slipped past the HTTP::Client::Dynamic404Handler (or similar server behavior) that can confuse discovery checks.

This is relatively easy to determine since valid responses to discovery checks should vary wildly, while custom-404 responses will have many commonalities every time.

This is a sort of baseline implementation/anomaly detection.

Analyzes the scan results and identifies issues logged by discovery checks

There's a good chance that these issues are false positives.
