Creating modules

Creating a module is flexible and allows for override of the BaseClass methods for each module as well as creating their own methods

Each module in Modules directory is implementing properties and methods from core.modules.BaseClass, thus each module's required parameter is BaseClass

Once created, module needs to be imported in modules/__init__.py. Module and class name must be consistent in order to module to be loaded.

If you are opening pull request to add new module, please provide unit tests for your module as well.

Module template

Modules/ExampleVulnerability.py

from core.modules import BaseClass


class ExampleVulnerability(object):

    # Vulnerability name
    name = "Cross-site Scripting"

    # Vulnerability severity
    severity = "Low-Medium"

    # Functions causing vulnerability
    functions = [
        "print"
        "echo"
    ]

    # Functions/regex that prevent exploitation
    blacklist = [
        "htmlspecialchars",
        "esc_attr"
    ]

Overriding regex match pattern

Regex pattern is being generated in core.modules.BaseClass.build_pattern and therefore can be overwritten in each module class.

Modules/ExampleVulnerability.py

import copy


...
# Build dynamic regex pattern to locate vulnerabilities in given content
def build_pattern(self, content, file):
    user_input = copy.deepcopy(self.user_input)

    variables = self.get_input_variables(self, content)

    if variables:
        user_input.extend(variables)

    if self.blacklist:
        blacklist_pattern = r"(?!(\s?)+(.*(" + '|'.join(self.blacklist) + ")))"
    else:
        blacklist_pattern = ""

    self.functions = [self.functions_prefix + x for x in self.functions]

    pattern = r"((" + '|'.join(self.functions) + ")\s{0,}\(?\s{0,1}" + blacklist_pattern + ".*(" + '|'.join(user_input) + ").*)"
    return pattern

Testing

Running unit tests: $ python3 -m unittest

You can’t perform that action at this time.
