CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:

Performs brute force password auditing against http form-based authentication. SYNTAX: brute.unique: make sure that each password is only guessed once (default: true) http-form-brute.hostname: sets the host header in case of virtual hosting brute.retries: the number of times to retry if recoverable failures occurs. (default: 3) http.pipeline: If set, it represents the number of HTTP requests that'll be pipelined (ie, sent in a single request). This can be set low to make debugging easier, or it can be set high to test how a server reacts (its chosen max is ignored). brute.credfile: a file containing username and password pairs delimited by '/' brute.threads: the number of initial worker threads, the number of active threads will be automatically adjusted. http-form-brute.passvar: sets the http-variable name that holds the password used to authenticate. A simple autodetection of this variable is attempted. http-form-brute.uservar: sets the http-variable name that holds the username used to authenticate. A simple autodetection of this variable is attempted. brute.firstonly: stop guessing after first password is found (default: false) brute.passonly: iterate over passwords only for services that provide only a password for authentication. (default: false) brute.mode: can be user, pass or creds and determines what mode to run the engine in. - user - the unpwdb library is used to guess passwords, every password password is tried for each user. (The user iterator is in the outer loop) - pass - the unpwdb library is used to guess passwords, each password is tried for every user. (The password iterator is in the outer loop) - creds- a set of credentials (username and password pairs) are guessed against the service. This allows for lists of known or common username and password combinations to be tested. If no mode is specified and the script has not added any custom iterator the pass mode will be enabled. http-max-cache-size: The maximum memory size (in bytes) of the cache. http-form-brute.path: points to the path protected by authentication brute.useraspass: guess the username as password for each user (default: true) brute.delay: the number of seconds to wait between guesses (default: 0)

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
