Tulpar is an open source penetration testing tool that can find web application vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS), Command injection, Directory traversal, E-mail disclosure, Credit card disclosure, and File inclusion attacks. Apart from these vulnerabilities assessments, Tulpar can do the following tests.

  • Web crawling
  • Whois information
  • Server information
  • Certification information
  • Technology information
  • Port scanner
  • Cyber Threat Intelligence
  • IP2Location
  • X-Content-Type check
  • X-XSS Protection check
  • File input available check

Tulpar Working

Running Tulpar requires the execution of following command in the terminal.

python tulpar.py <action> <target web url>

The <action> argument in the above command is the desired scanner function, such as all, sql, xss, portscanner, and fuzzing. The following screenshot shows the complete list of scanner functions that can be set in the <action> field.

tulpar optional arguments

We can use the all argument to scan everything supported by the tool.

python tulpar.py all testphp.vulnweb.com

tulpar target scan all results

We can use Tulpar tool to scan specific vulnerability, such as SQL, in the following manner.

python tulpar.py sql http://testphp.vulnweb.com/listproducts.php?cat=1

If the target web application is vulnerable to SQL injection, the tool shows a number of payloads that can be successfully injected to find out the database errors in the target web application.

Similarly, we can use Tulpar tool for other aforementioned information gathering purposes. For instance, we can use Tulpar tool as follows to scan the live ports in the target web applications.

python tulpar.py portscanner testphp.vulnweb.com

What Bunny rating does it get?

Tulpar is an open source web application scanner that can help in information gathering and vulnerabilities assessment tasks. The tool, however, slows down while performing some of the scanning tasks, therefore we are giving it  4 out of 5 bunnies.

The _ga is asssociated with Google Universal Analytics - which is a significant update to Google's more commonly used analytics service. This cookie is used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports. By default it is set to expire after 2 years, although this is customisable by website owners.

The _gat global object is used to create and retrieve tracker objects, from which all other methods are invoked. Therefore the methods in this list should be run only off a tracker object created using the _gat global variable. All other methods should be called using the _gaq global object for asynchronous tracking.

_gid works as a user navigates between web pages, they can use the gtag.js tagging library to record information about the page the user has seen (for example, the page's URL) in Google Analytics. The gtag.js tagging library uses HTTP Cookies to "remember" the user's previous interactions with the web pages.
