RFI Vulnerability Scanner
Crashtest Security Suite is an automated scanner tool that checks for Remote File Inclusion Vulnerability and Local File Inclusion Vulnerability quickly and easily.
- Scan for RFI and LFI vulnerabilities
- Detect OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities (XSS, SQL injections, XXE, and many more)
- Get security reports and remediations advice
- Automated online SaaS RFI vulnerability scanner
RFI scanner features
By running security tests on your web application, the RFI scanner looks for Remote File Inclusion Vulnerabilities. Our solution is known as automated pentest software or DAST. We focus on working the same way a human cybersecurity expert would do. In this case, however, the results are faster and less expensive than manual pen-testing. You don’t need to spend hours searching for your vulnerabilities. It takes less than 5 minutes to:
Create and verify your scan target.
Configure the credentials for the system and the application.
Create a webhook and start a scan via the CI Integration.
Integrate a chat notification system (Slack, Mattermost, Hangouts, and many more.)
Download the report
Get reports with remediation guidance, risk assessments, and solutions for every vulnerability discovered.
RFI scanner benefits
- Share vulnerability reports in PDF, XML/JSON, or CSV formats with your team.
- Check for other flaws, such as those on the OWASP Top 10 list for 2021.
- Limit the damage loss and protect your users from the vast increase in cyber breaches.
- Easily integrate into your development pipeline and workflow.
Ample remote file inclusion report
The RFI report is a sophisticated tool that gives you full details about your cybersecurity posture. Check out how to correct what’s failing and save manual testing effort and money on cyber defense.
The report starts with a high-level overview of the data breaches in your scan target, including the severity of the threats and their effects. You’ll find a list of every remote file inclusion attack vector and other security details.
Each discovered vulnerability comes with risk classification, description, and detailed instructions for how to fix the problem.
More reasons for continuous RFI testing
Perform regular black box pentests on your web assets and spend less on infrequent manual penetration tests.
Cybersecurity Risk Reduction
Benchmark your next release against OWASP Top 10 and other known vulnerabilities.
Match vulnerability scanning to your agile dev cycle.
Scan every new release before deployment and ensure compliance with regulations and standards (HIPAA, GDPR, ISO, and many more).
Faster Vulnerability Detection
Detect and mitigate vulnerabilities quicker by scanning your web assets regularly.
Integrated Dev Pipeline
Integrate vulnerability scanning into your dev process and environment and shift security left.
What is an RFI vulnerability scanner?
The RFI scanner tests your online application security posture while saving time and money for developers.
We provide an easy-to-implement cybersecurity strategy:
- Developers save around 100 hours per year due to reduced time spent on test preparation and fast remedial recommendations provided in the scan report.
- On average, you’ll save 40% on testing costs and retain ongoing security posture transparency while minimizing your risk.
Note: To scan for remote file inclusion vulnerability, you must own the site and have the proper admin access. You’ll need the authorization to run this scanner since the RFI tool can generate various HTTP Requests that could be identified as attacks (albeit they’re entirely safe).
How does RFI scanner work?
The file inclusion scanner uses special payloads to include local or remote files into the web application. If a website has a file inclusion vulnerability, an attacker can read sensitive files like PHP scripts or can even execute arbitrary commands on the webserver.
How do I detect remote file inclusion vulnerabilities?
Set up and start scanning in less than 2 minutes.
- Check the fastest setup on the market. You can find out if you are exposed to RFI vulnerability in just one click. Crashtest Security scans your web app in 2 minutes and serves a study document with all weaknesses found.
- A great technical security customer team. We double-check your Remote File Inclusion test to ensure you’re using our vulnerability software appropriately.
- Mitigate all Top 10 OWASP vulnerabilities, not only the RFI vulnerability. You’ll understand what sorts of cyberattacks you’re vulnerable to and how harmful they are.
What is file inclusion?
An attacker can include arbitrary files into the web application via a local or remote file inclusion, exposing sensitive files. Occasionally, the attacker can run malicious code on the webserver and completely seize control of the system.
Attackers can use them to gain access to other connected systems, resulting in application downtime and data loss. As a result, it is critical to comprehend the nature of these attacks and how they might be avoided.
What is remote file inclusion?
An attacker can utilize remote file inclusion (RFI) to have a web application include a remote file. For web apps that dynamically integrate external files or scripts. A successful RFI attack can result in sensitive information leakage, Cross-site Scripting (XSS), remote code execution, and full system control in the worst-case scenario.
What is the difference between remote and local file inclusion?
An attacker can use remote file inclusion (RFI) to have a web application include a remote file. This is conceivable for web apps that dynamically integrate external files or scripts.
How to prevent File Inclusion vulnerability?
- Never include files straight from user-modifiable variables.
- Validate user input. The easiest method to avoid this issue is to hardcode any files you need to include. Nevertheless, maintaining a whitelist of files authorized to be included may be better. Any other file requested by the user may be denied.
- Avoid Remote File Inclusion. If you do not need the inclusion of remote files, you can set “allow_url_include=off” in your php.ini file to disable the inclusion of remote files.
