Learning Objectives

Using the DirBuster Application The DirBuster tool is a multi-threaded java application that is used to perform brute force over directories and file names on web and application servers. DirBuster attempts to find hidden directories and pages within a web application, providing users with an additional attack vector. This is the primary function of the application; it won't exploit anything that it finds. DirBuster works by identifying content within the application or on the web server that isn't required. It helps developers to build secure applications by helping them understand that not linking to a page doesn't mean that the page can't be accessed.
