Scanner for IIS Tilde vulnerability.


Also check tilde_enum.


git clone https://github.com/irsdl/IIS-ShortName-Scanner.git


java -jar iis_shortname_scanner.jar 2 20 <url>


USAGE 1 (To verify if the target is vulnerable with the default config file):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar [URL]

USAGE 2 (To find 8.3 file names with the default config file):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar [ShowProgress] [ThreadNumbers] [URL]

USAGE 3 (To verify if the target is vulnerable with a new config file):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar [URL] [configFile]

USAGE 4 (To find 8.3 file names with a new config file):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar [ShowProgress] [ThreadNumbers] [URL] [configFile]

 [ShowProgress]: 0= Show final results only - 1= Show final results step by step  - 2= Show Progress
 [ThreadNumbers]: 0= No thread - Integer Number = Number of concurrent threads [be careful about IIS Denial of Service]
 [URL]: A complete URL - starts with http/https protocol
 [configFile]: path to a new config file which is based on config.xml

- Example 0 (to see if the target is vulnerable):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar http://example.com/folder/

- Example 1 (uses no thread - very slow):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar 2 0 http://example.com/folder/new%20folder/

- Example 2 (uses 20 threads - recommended):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar 2 20 http://example.com/folder/new%20folder/

- Example 3 (saves output in a text file):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar 0 20 http://example.com/folder/new%20folder/ > c:\results.txt

- Example 4 (bypasses IIS basic authentication):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar 2 20 http://example.com/folder/AuthNeeded:$I30:$Index_Allocation/

- Example 5 (using a new config file):
 java -jar IIS_shortname_scanner.jar 2 20 http://example.com/folder/ newconfig.xml
