==OWASP Web Malware Scanner Tool Project==
Instructions are in RED text and should be removed from your document by deleting the text with the span tags. This document is intended to serve as an example of what is required of an OWASP project wiki page. The text in red serves as instructions, while the text in black serves as an example. Text in black is expected to be replaced entirely with information specific to your OWASP project.

The OWASP Web Malware Scanner is a malware scanner for web applications. The goal is to be able to scan a web application folder for any malware using a community driven signature database. The Web Malware Scanner is run locally to the web application folder much like an anti-virus. This project was created because the ClamAV project and other similar open source tools were unable to detect some infected files on some of our production servers and we needed a solution to scan our web applications with better results.

The Web Malware Scanner is not a vulnerability scanner, it is a malware scanner used to identify compromised web application installations.

The Web Malware Scanner Project uses regular expressions to search files for malware signatures as opposed to the custom ClamAV signature database wildcard syntax, which is somewhat more limited.

==Features==
 +
 
 +
* Support for Windows, Linux and MacOS
 +
* Over 500 000 malware MD5 hashes
 +
* Over 500 YARA ruleset databases
  
The ClamAV custom wildcard syntax only includes the following wildcards: <nowiki>?? Matches any byte. * Matches any number of bytes (including 0 byte). {n} Matches n bytes. {-n} Matches n bytes or less. {n-} Matches at least n bytes. {m-n} Matches between m and n bytes. (0a|1b) Matches 0a or 1b.</nowiki>

The Web Malware Scanner project uses standard regular expressions for a much wider range of matching patterns.

A project leader is the individual who decides to lead the project throughout its lifecycle. The project leader is responsible for communicating the project’s progress to the OWASP Foundation, and he/she is ultimately responsible for the project’s deliverables. The project leader must provide OWASP with his/her real name and contact e-mail address for his/her project application to be accepted, as OWASP prides itself on the openness of its products, operations, and members.

Many projects have "Frequently Asked Questions" documents or pages. However, the point of such a document is not the questions. ''The point of a document like this are the '''answers'''''. The document contains the answers that people would otherwise find themselves giving over and over again. The idea is that rather than laboriously compose and post the same answers repeatedly, people can refer to this page with pre-prepared answers.

Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator.  See the Road Map and Getting Involved tab for more details.

One thing you can do, if you want to help, is to send infected or suspicious files to the project leader. These files will be analysed and added to the signature database if needed.

A project roadmap is the envisioned plan for the project. The purpose of the roadmap is to help others understand where the project is going as well as areas that volunteers may contribute. It gives the community a chance to understand the context and the vision for the goal of the project. Additionally, if a project becomes inactive, or if the project is abandoned, a roadmap can help ensure a project can be adopted and continued under new leadership.
 
Roadmaps vary in detail from a broad outline to a fully detailed project charter. Generally speaking, projects with detailed roadmaps have tended to develop into successful projects. Some details that leaders may consider placing in the roadmap include: envisioned milestones, planned feature enhancements, essential conditions, project assumptions, development timelines, etc. You are required to have at least 4 milestones for every year the project is active.

This page is where you should indicate what is the minimum set of functionality that is required to make this a useful product that addresses your core security concern.
 
Defining this information helps the project leader to think about what is the critical functionality that a user needs for this project to be useful, thereby helping determine what the priorities should be on the roadmap.  And it also helps reviewers who are evaluating the project to determine if the functionality sufficiently provides the critical functionality to determine if the project should be promoted to the next project category.

OWASP Web Malware Scanner Tool Project

The OWASP Web Malware Scanner is a malware scanner for web applications. The goal is to be able to scan a web application using a community driven signature database. The Web Malware Scanner works by scanning each files of the web application for known malwares.

The Web Malware Scanner is not a vulnerability scanner, it is a malware scanner used to identify compromised web application installations.

The deliverable is a python application.

Description

Web Malware Scanner is a simple malware scanner for web applications. It can be used to identify compromised Wordpress, Joomla and other popular web application installations.

The Web Malware Scanner will scan each files and compare them to the Web Malware Scanner's signature database. Each file is scanned for any known malware MD5 checksum and also for any malware patterns using YARA rules. Finally, the scan will look for insecure permissions for every files and folders.

The goal of the OWASP Web Malware Scanner Project is to have a community driven signature database. You are more than welcome to contribute to this project by sending us new malware signatures.

Features

  • Support for Windows, Linux and MacOS
  • Over 500 000 malware MD5 hashes
  • Over 500 YARA ruleset databases

News and Events

  • [01 Jun 2016] Working on version 1.0; New GUI, Automatic updates, new signature database, Standalone application for Windows, Linux and MacOS
  • [04 Mar 2016] The Web Malware Scanner is now an official OWASP Project

How can I participate in your project?

All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.

I'm not a programmer, how can I help?

One thing you can do, if you want to help, is to send infected or suspicious files to the project leader. These files will be analysed and added to the signature database if needed.

The first contributors to the project were:

Roadmap

The base application is already completed. The next step is to populate the signature database and optimize the current codebase.

As of March, 2016, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:

  • Populate the signature database
  • Optimize the codebase
  • Incorporate new ideas and security assessments
  • Add scan for compressed files
  • Report false positives
  • Automatic updates

Getting Involved

Involvement in the development and promotion of Web Malware Scanner Project is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:

Coding

We could implement some of the later items on the roadmap sooner if someone wanted to help out with unit or automated regression tests

Testing

Do you have a flair for finding bugs in software? We want to product a high quality product, so any help with Quality Assurance would be greatly appreciated. Let us know if you can offer your help.

Feedback

Please send us feedback about:

  • What do like?
  • What don't you like?
  • What features would you like to see prioritized on the roadmap?
  • Do you think we forgot something important? Let us know!

We feel that the signature database is the most important aspect of this project. If the database is updated often with new signatures, this project will remain useful.
