Scan for vulnerable 3rd party web applications

Yasuo is a ruby script that scans for vulnerable & exploitable 3rd-party web applications on a network.

During a network security assessment we often come across vulnerable 3rd-party web applications or web front-ends that allow us to compromise the remote server by exploiting publicly known vulnerabilities.

Exploit-db contains hundreds exploits that could allow an attacker to completely compromise the back-end server. These vulnerabilities range from RCE to malicious file uploads to SQL injection to RFI/LFI etc.

Yasuo is built to quickly scan the network for such vulnerable applications.


gem install ruby-nmap net-http-persistent mechanize text-table

-r :: If you want Yasuo to perform port scan, use this switch to provide an IP address or IP range or an input file with new-line separated IP addresses

-s :: Provide custom signature file. [./yasuo.rb -s mysignatures.yaml -f nmap.xml] [Default – signatures.yaml]

-f :: If you do not want Yasuo to perform port scan and already have an nmap output in xml format, use this switch to feed the nmap output

-n :: Tells Yasuo to not ping the host while performing the port scan. Standard nmap option.

-p :: Use this switch to provide port number(s)/range

-A :: Use this switch to scan all the 65535 ports. Standard nmap option.

-b [all/form/basic] :: If the discovered application implements authentication, use this switch to brute-force the auth. “all” will brute-force both form & http basic auth. “form” will only brute-force form-based auth. “basic” will only brute-force http basic auth.

-t :: Specify maximum number of threads


./yasuo -r -p 80,8080,443,8443 -b form

The above command will perform port scan against on ports 80, 8080, 443 and 8443 and will brute-force login for all the applications that implement form-based authentication.

./yasuo -f my_nmap_output.xml -b all

The above command will parse the nmap output file “my_nmap_output.xml” and will brute-force login for all the applications that implement form-based and http basic authentication.
