WackoPicko is a website that contains known vulnerabilities. It was first used for the paper Why Johnny Can't Pentest: An Analysis of Black-box Web Vulnerability Scanners
WackoPicko is now included as an application in the OWASP Broken Web Applications Project which is a Virtual Machine with numerous intentionally vulnerable application.
- WackoPicko on aldeid, a security wiki.
First, ensure that short_open_tag PHP ini option is enabled:
Import the WackoPicko database into MySQL using a command like the following:
mysql -u -p < current.sql
This will create the MySQL user wackopicko with the password webvuln!@# as well as create the wackopicko table.
The wackopicko table contains all of the data that was present while testing the scanners in Why Johnny Can't Pentest.
The final step is to enable read/write access to the upload directory of WackoPicko for the webserver user. An easy way to do this is:
chmod 777 -R upload
- The search bar doesn't appear in Internet Explorer.
- There are some onions hanging around (particularly in the upload folder) but I kept them there to preserve parity with the version used during the tests.
- WackoPicko was developed with the assumption that is was running as the root application as the URL and won't work running as a directory.
- WackoPicko uses PHP's short tags, they must be enabled to run the application.
