SYNOPSIS

authforce [options]URL

DESCRIPTION

Authforce is an HTTP Authentication brute forcer. Using various methods, it attempts brute force username and password pairs for a site. It has the ability to try common username and passwords, username derivations, and common username/password pairs. It is used to both test the security of your site and to prove the insecurity of HTTP Authentication based on the fact that users just don’t pick good passwords.

BUGS

\r printed items leave garbage at end of line sometimes

Invalid chars are not filtered, curl will prompt for password:

If a password has a space, only chars up to the space will be submitted

Assumes authentication is needed, reporting false successes (sorta)

Downloads the page, shouldnt do this

No way of setting debug before parse_config
