Subject: [WEB SECURITY] Nikto 2 released
To: websecurity at webappsec.org

Just wanted to let everyone know that Nikto 2 is finally out (after
years of dragging my feet and more than a few excuses!).

Nikto is an open source (GPL) web server scanner which performs tests
against web servers for multiple items, including over 3500
potentially dangerous files/CGIs, versions on over 900 servers, and
version specific problems on over 250 servers.

Version 2 adds a ton of enhancements, including:
- Fingerprinting web servers via favicon.ico files
- 404 error checking for each file type
- Enhanced false positive reduction via multiple methods: headers,
page content, and content hashing
- Scan tuning to include or exclude entire classes of vulnerability checks
- Uses LibWhisker 2, which has its own long list of enhancements
- A "single" scan mode that allows you to craft an HTTP request manually
- Basic template engine so that HTML reports can be easily customized
- An experimental knowledge base for scans, which will allow
regenerated reports and retests (future)
- Optimizations, bug fixes and more...
