About OWASP Joomla Vulnerability Scanner

Joomla! is probably the most widely-used CMS out there due to its flexibility, user-friendlinesss, extensibility to name a few. So, watching its vulnerabilities and adding such vulnerabilities as KB of Joomla! scanner takes ongoing activity.

It will help web developers and pentesters to help identify published known security weaknesses on their deployed Joomla! sites. No web security scanner is dedicated only one CMS.

To my experience, security testing on Joomla! web application requires pentester to look back the published vulnerabilities and if free, move on to generic testing. If we do only generic testing, we might miss a lot because it needs the knowledge of Joomla! application - its vulnerabilities in what version, what components are vulnerable in what version, what common security mistakes that web masters make ...etc.
