Cool idea, though i'm not sure why ... both Whisker and Nikto (based on lib
whisker) are very well supported and include a wealth of attack strings for
almost every O/S, and are mostly regarded as the defacto standard for web
server testing.

nikto: http://www.cirt.net/code/nikto.shtml

As for the problem with some signatures ... have you tried using netcat to
connect to the server insteaad of wget?

just some thoughts,

Alrighty folks, a little testing tool that runs on the windows platform to
share here. Its just something I threw together real quick.

You will need to re-name httpattack to httpattack.bat. Also you will need
wget.exe (ported to Windows). You can get it from:

*nix~ers, you should be able to run this bad-boy as well; direct from your
shell of choice.

CAUTION!! This tool will trigger alerts in Snort and several other IDS's. Do
NOT use without

Read the ReadMe.txt for a description and instructions.

Any feedback or ideas for improvements are welcome.
