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.

New in version 2.0.0:

  • Option to consolidate all findings with the same version number into one scanner report
  • UI display includes a list of found domains and versions

Requires Java version 7+
