DirBuster is a multi threaded java application designed to brute force directories and files names on web/application servers. Often is the case now of what looks like a web server in a state of default installation is actually not, and has pages and applications hidden within. DirBuster attempts to find these.

However tools of this nature are often as only good as the directory and file list they come with. A different approach was taken to generating this. The list was generated from scratch, by crawling the Internet and collecting the directory and files that are actually used by developers! DirBuster comes a total of 9 different lists (Further information can be found below), this makes DirBuster extremely effective at finding those hidden files and directories. And if that was not enough DirBuster also has the option to perform a pure brute force, which leaves the hidden directories and files nowhere to hide! If you have the time ;)

'''3rd March 2009 - Version 1.0-RC1'''
  
'''7th January 2008 - Version 0.9.9 only works with Java 1.6 or above'''
+
After some major code changes I have opted for a release candidate before 1.0, to weed out any bugs. Features introduced in this release are:
 +
* Auto pause, when 20 consecutive 20 errors happen
 +
* Spelling mistakes corrected
 +
* Multi threaded all the work generation, so multiple dir and file exts are scanned at the same time (this makes it much faster!)
 +
* Reconstructed multiple parts of the code
 +
* Proxy settings are now persistent
 +
* The ability to change the look and feel has now been added
 +
* Added Jbrofuzz dir list (Thank you Yiannis)
 +
* Removed the two large dir lists
 +
* Added new reporting formats (simple lists, xml, csv)
  
I am looking into the problem and a fix should be released soon.

====The DirBuster Lists====
 
DirBuster comes with a set of unique directory and files lists, these have been generated based on the file and directory names that are actually used by developers on internet sites. The order of the lists is based on the frequency of the item found. Therefore the most common items appear at the top.  These lists are what make DirBuster.

NOTE: It will come as no surprise to you all that the internet is full of porn, thus it not surprising that the spider used to generate the lists visited a few along the way. Thus there are explicit words contained within the lists. My stand point on this is simple, this tool was designed to used as part of legitimate security testing, and if there are directories/files based on explicit words, clients would want to know!!

Overview

Screen shot

DirBuster is a multi threaded java application designed to brute force directories and files names on web/application servers. Often is the case now of what looks like a web server in a state of default installation is actually not, and has pages and applications hidden within. DirBuster attempts to find these.

However tools of this nature are often as only good as the directory and file list they come with. A different approach was taken to generating this. The list was generated from scratch, by crawling the Internet and collecting the directory and files that are actually used by developers! DirBuster comes a total of 9 different lists (Further information can be found below), this makes DirBuster extremely effective at finding those hidden files and directories. And if that was not enough DirBuster also has the option to perform a pure brute force, which leaves the hidden directories and files nowhere to hide! If you have the time ;)

What DirBuster can do for you

  • Attempt to find hidden pages/directories and directories with a web application, thus giving a another attack vector (For example. Finding an unlinked to administration page).

What DirBuster will not do for you

  • Exploit anything it finds. This is not the purpose of DirBuster. DirBuster sole job is to find other possible attack vectors.

How does DirBuster help in the building of secure applications?

  • By finding content on the web server or within the application that is not required.
  • By helping developers understand that by simply not linking to a page does not mean it can not be accessed.

Project Goals

The goals for the DirBuster Project are as follows:

  • To produce a tool to that will assist in black box application testing, by trying to find hidden content.
  • Ensure the tool produced provides information is such a way that any false positives produce can be quickly identified.
  • Produce text based lists that can be used by the above mentioned tool.

Future Development Plans

  • Improve and finish the java portion of the program
    • Add documentation about the program eg Help, FAQ's
    • Fully document the code
  • Improve the DirBuster spider engine that generates the lists
    • Gather information on things like cookie names, sub domain names, POST and GET variable names

The DirBuster Lists

DirBuster comes with a set of unique directory and files lists, these have been generated based on the file and directory names that are actually used by developers on internet sites. The order of the lists is based on the frequency of the item found. Therefore the most common items appear at the top. These lists are what make DirBuster.

NOTE: It will come as no surprise to you all that the internet is full of porn, thus it not surprising that the spider used to generate the lists visited a few along the way. Thus there are explicit words contained within the lists. My stand point on this is simple, this tool was designed to used as part of legitimate security testing, and if there are directories/files based on explicit words, clients would want to know!!

The following lists are included with DirBuster, or as a separate download:

  • directory-list-2.3-small.txt - (87650 words) - Directories/files that where found on at least 3 different hosts
  • directory-list-2.3-medium.txt - (220546 words) - Directories/files that where found on at least 2 different hosts
  • directory-list-2.3-big.txt - (1273819 words) - All directories/files that where found
  • directory-list-lowercase-2.3-small.txt - (81629 words) - Case insensitive version of directory-list-2.3-small.txt
  • directory-list-lowercase-2.3-medium.txt - (207629 words) - Case insensitive version of directory-list-2.3-medium.txt
  • directory-list-lowercase-2.3-big.txt - (1185240 words) - Case insensitive version of directory-list-2.3-big.txt
  • directory-list-1.0.txt - (141694 words) - Original unordered list
  • apache-user-enum-1.0.txt - (8916 usernames) - Used for guessing system users on apache with the userdir module enabled, based on a username list I had lying around (unordered)
  • apache-user-enum-2.0.txt - (10341 usernames) - Used for guessing system users on apache with the userdir module enabled, based on ~XXXXX found during list generation (Ordered)
