Our Joomla Security Scanner tool has been extended with the Joomscan security testing tool. Joomscan is a tool that tests a Joomla installation for known vulnerable plugins and core security configuration mistakes. Detection of these vulnerabilities will allow a web site owner to get the plugins update or fixed before they get attacked.joomla! is probably the most widely-used CMS out there due to its flexibility, user-friendlinesss, extensibility to name a few. So, watching its vulnerabilities and adding such vulnerabilities as KB to Joomla scanner takes ongoing activity. It will help web developers and web masters to help identify possible security weaknesses on their deployed Joomla! sites.



joomscan -u <string> -x proxy:port -u <string> = joomla Url



         -x <string:int>  = proXy to tunnel
         -c <string>      = Cookie (name=value;)
         -g "<string>"    = desired useraGent string(within ") 
         -nv              = No Version fingerprinting check
         -nf              = No Firewall detection check
         -nvf/-nfv        = No version+firewall check
         -pe 		  = Poke version only and Exit
         -ot              = Output to Text file (target-joexploit.txt)
