Why this tool?

WordPress is a popular choice among content management systems (CMS). Powering many websites and blogs, it is also a popular target. So regular updates and security testing can help to reduce the risk. WordStress can help with this testing.

How it works

Most security scanners perform a black-box approach and perform different types of test. This approach may result in false positives, as not everything can be properly validated. This can be consuming time and resources for both the security researcher and the one who maintains the installation. Wordstress takes another approach by doing a white-box scan. This means you will need to have full access to the WordPress installation, with the big benefit of getting more in-depth scans.

Usage and audience

Wordstress is commonly used for application security, vulnerability scanning, or web application analysis. Target users for this tool are developers, pentesters, security professionals, and system administrators.
