DirBuster Vulnerability Scanner: The Basics

2m 47s

This lesson covers the basics of using DirBuster, the directory buster. Dirbuster is used once you have scanned an IP address and found any vulnerabilities. DirBuster will help you map out the application. Building a directory of the target site is useful in finding as many potential points of entry to the target. This could be done manually, by going through the website and making a note of every page on the site. However, there is a potential for a high error rate; site directories could be wrongly taken down, or missed altogether. DirBuster automates this process, and builds a map of the site for you, and finds any potential hidden sites.
