How to Install DalFox XSS Scanner on Linux

DalFox is a fast and powerful XSS and parameter parsing scanner based on a golang/DOM parser. supports Pipeline friendly, CI/CD and testing of different types of XSS. In this tutorial, we will show you how to install DalFox scanner on Linux .

The basic concept is to parse parameters, find XSS and check them against the DOM parser. Main Features of DalFox :

  • Parameter analysis (find reflected parameter, find free/bad characters, identification of injection point);
  • Static analysis (check Bad-header like CSP, X-Frame-optiopns, etc. on request/response basis);
  • Payload optimization query:
    • Check the injection point through abstraction and generated the tuning payload;
    • Eliminate unnecessary payloads based on badchar.
  • XSS scan (reflected + stored) and DOM base checking;
  • All test payloads (built-in, custom/blind) are tested in parallel with the encoder:
    • Dual URL Encoder Support;
    • Support for HTML Hex Encoder.
  • Friendly pipeline (unique, file, IO url);
  • And the various options needed for testing:
    • built-in/custom grep to find another vulnerability;
    • if you found, after the action.
  • And much more!
