A perl based tool for misconfiguration, version detection, enumeration, and server information scanning. Web-Sorrow is a “safe to run” program. meaning it is not designed attempt to exploit or preform any kind of injection, DDoS/DoS, CSRF, XSS, or any harmful attacks. It’s entirely focused on Enumeration and collecting Info on the target server.

CURRENT functionality:
-S – stands for standard. a set of Standard tests and includes: indexing of directories testing, banner grabbing, language detection (should be obvious), robots.txt, 200 response testing (some servers send a 200 ok for every req), and thumbs.db scanning
-auth – looks for login pages with a list of some of the most common login files and dirs and admin consoles. don’t need to be very big list of URLs because what else are going to name it? notAlogin.php???
-Cp – scan with a huge list of plugins dirs. the list is a bit old (Drupal and wordpress plugins databases are now current but sorry joomla’s still a bit old)
-I – searches the responses for interesting strings
-Ws – looks for web services such as hosting provider, blogging services, favicon fingerprinting, and cms version info
-Fd – look for generally things people don’t want you to see. The list is generated form a TON of robot.txt so whatever it finds should be interesting.
-ninja – A light weight and undetectable scan that uses bits and peaces from other scans
-R – use http range headers to make scans faster
-Shadow – Use Google cache instead of requesting from the target host
-Sd – Bruteforce Sub Domains
-Db – Bruteforce Directories with the big dirbuster Database
-ua – use a custom UserAgent. PUT UA IN QUOTES if there’s spaces
-proxy – send all http reqs via a proxy. example:
-e – run all the scans in the tool

web-sorrow also has false positives checking on most of it’s requests (it pretty accurate but not perfect)


  • basic: perl Wsorrow.pl -host scanme.nmap.org -S
  • stealthy: perl Wsorrow.pl -host scanme.nmap.org -ninja -proxy
  • scan for login pages: perl Wsorrow.pl -host -auth
  • CMS intense scan: perl Wsorrow.pl -host -Ws -Cp all -I
  • most intense scan possible: perl Wsorrow.pl -host -e
  • dump http headers: perl headerDump.pl
  • Check if host is alive: perl hdt.pl -host
