Damn Vulnerable Web Sockets (DVWS): Vulnerable Web Application Which Works On Web Sockets

Vulnerable Web Application


Damn Vulnerable Web Sockets (DVWS) is a vulnerable web application which works on web sockets for client-server communication. 


The flow of the application is similar to DVWA. You will find more vulnerabilities than the ones listed in the application.

Requirements


In the hosts file of your attacker machine create an entry for dvws.local to point at the IP address hosting the DVWS application.

Location of hosts file:

Windows: C:\windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
Linux: /etc/hosts

Sample entry for hosts file:

192.168.100.199         dvws.local

The application requires the following:

Apache + PHP + MySQL

PHP with MySQLi support

Ratchet

ReactPHP-MySQL

Setting up DVWS

Set the MySQL hostname, username, password and an existing database name in the includes/connect-db.php file then go to Setup to finish setting up DVWS.

Running DVWS

On the host running this application, run the following command from DVWS directory: php ws-socket.php

Important Note

DVWS has been developed with limited knowledge of Web Sockets. Feel free to contribute and enhance this project.
