JoomlaVS is a Ruby application that can help automate assessing how vulnerable a Joomla installation is to exploitation. It supports basic finger printing and can scan for vulnerabilities in components, modules and templates as well as vulnerabilities that exist within Joomla itself.
How to install
JoomlaVS has so far only been tested on Debian, but the installation process should be similar across most operating systems.
- Ensure Ruby [2.0 or above] is installed on your system
- Clone the source code using
git clone https://github.com/rastating/joomlavs.git
- Install bundler and required gems using
sudo gem install bundler && bundle install
How to use
The only required option is the
--urloption, which specifies the address to target. To do a full scan, however, the
--scan-alloption should also be specified, e.g.
ruby joomlavs.rb -u yourjoomlatarget.com --scan-all.
