Screencast: How to use Wikto for Web server assessment

Peter Giannoulis demonstrates what kinds of website and Web server information can be found using the free Wikto tool.

Wikto may not test for SQL injections, but it is still an essential tool for penetration testers who are looking for vulnerabilities in their Internet-facing Web servers.

This month, Peter Giannoulis of The Academy.ca demonstrates how Wikto can display the good and bad directories contained on a Web server. Also, see for yourself what other kinds of information can be gathered about a specific website, and which plug-ins will allow you to get the most out of the free tool.
