Commix (short for [comm]and [i]njection e[x]ploiter) is an automated tool written by Anastasios Stasinopoulos (@ancst) that can be used from web developers, penetration testers or even security researchers in order to test web-based applications with the view to find bugs, errors or vulnerabilities related to command injection attacks. By using this tool, it is very easy to find and exploit a command injection vulnerability in a certain vulnerable parameter or HTTP header.
This tool is only for testing and academic purposes and can only be used where strict consent has been given. Do not use it for illegal purposes!
Python version 2.6.x or 2.7.x is required for running this program.
Download commix by cloning the Git repository:
git clone https://github.com/stasinopoulos/commix.git commix
Commix comes packaged on the official repositories of the following Linux distributions, so you can use the package manager to install it!
Commix also comes pre-installed, on the following penetration testing frameworks:
To get a list of all options and switches use:
python commix.py -h
Do you want to have a quick look of all available options and switches? Check the 'usage' wiki page.
So, do you want to get some ideas on how to use commix? Just go and check the 'usage examples' wiki page, where there are several test cases and attack scenarios.
Commix enables you to upload web-shells (e.g metasploit PHP meterpreter) easily on target host. For more, check the 'upload shells' wiki page.
Do you want to increase the capabilities of the commix tool and/or to adapt it to our needs? You can easily develop and import our own modules. For more, check the 'module development' wiki page.
Command Injection Testbeds
Do you want to test or evaluate the exploitation abilities of commix? Cool! Check the 'command injection testbeds' wiki page which includes a collection of pwnable web applications and/or VMs (that includes web applications) vulnerable to command injection attacks.
If you want to see a collection of demos, about the exploitation abilities of commix, take a look at the 'exploitation demos' wiki page.
