Damn Vulnerable Web Application
Damn Vulnerable Web App (DVWA) is a PHP/MySQL web application that is damn vulnerable. Its main goals are to be an aid for security professionals to test their skills and tools in a legal environment, help web developers better understand the processes of securing web applications and aid teachers/students to teach/learn web application security in a class room environment.
Do not upload it to your hosting provider's public html folder or any internet facing web server as it will be compromised. We recommend downloading and installing XAMPP onto a local machine inside your LAN which is used solely for testing.
The vulnerability help page has been improved.
We now display the logged on username along with the vulnerability level and php-ids status.
Blind SQL injection has been implemented.
We now have official documentation.
You can now compare all vulnerable source code in one page with the ‘view all’ button.
The whole theme has been redesigned, including a new great looking logo.
Many bug fixes and small changes throughout the application.
But that’s not all, we have continued the work that Duncan Alderson had done on the 1.0.6 LiveCD, as the LiveCD proved to be a great success. The new LiveCD is not only a vulnerable web application but also a badly configured web server which includes many server misconfiguration.
