::: cum security toolkit ::: cst :::

The cum security toolkit (cst) contains a cgi vulnerability scanner and a port scanner, and can be used as a hacking tool, or as a security vulnerability assesment tool.

The cgi scanner is a web vulnerability scanner that scans using a database of scripts, files and directories (user editable). The sample databases included contain +2200 possibly vulnerable scripts/dirs. You can scan with or without using (multiple) proxy servers. The cgi scanner has +11 different anti-IDS tactics (hex-values, double slashes, self-reference directories, session splicing, parameter hiding, http misformatting, dos/win directory syntax, case sensitivity, null method processing, long urls, premature request ending and http 0.9 scans), and sends fake "X-Forwarded-For:", "Referer:" and "User-Agent:" headers to hide your scans even more. You can also specify a waittime between 2 script fetches. The cgi scanner uses HEAD requests for faster scanning (you can scan using GET by providing an extra flag), and supports scanning virtual hosts. You can also specify another port to scan instead of the standard port 80, or another directory than the standard cgi-bin or scripts. The scanner outputs the scripts and/or directories that return a 200, 201, 202, 204, 403 or 401 HTTP code (you can specify other codes too using an extra flag) and outputs the target webserver software. You can scan single hosts, or supply a file with a list with targets for bulk scanning.

The port scanner is a simple TCP portscanner with banner grabbing. It outputs which ports are open, sends a string to the open ports (user specified), and shows their reply. It is more an enumeration / stress tool. You can scan seperate ports and/or portranges, and you can scan a single host, or supply a list with servers for bulk scanning.

The cst security scanners are written entirely in Java, to run them you need a Java runtime environment, go to http://java.sun.com/ to download one (look for j2se or a Java virtual machine).

The latest version of cst is v1.41 :
