BApp details: Software Version Reporter
This extension passively detects server software version numbers during scanning, spidering etc.
Often the server version is revealed only on error responses, which may not be visible during the normal course of testing. Some examples are:
- "Apache Tomcat/6.0.24 - Error report"
- "Server: Apache/2.2.4 (Unix) mod_perl/2.0.3 Perl/v5.8.8"
- "X-AspNet-Version: 4.0.30319"
Match rules are loaded from a remote tab-delimited file at extension startup.
Users can also load their own match rules from a local file or using the BApp GUI.
To view the source code or submit new match rules, go to GitHub:
Requires Java version 7.
