Parameth

Parameth tool can be used to brute discover GET and POST parameters. Often when you are busting a directory for common files, you can identify scripts (for example test.php) that look like they need to be passed an unknown parameter. This hopefully can help find them.

The -off flag allows you to specify an offset (helps with dynamic pages) so for example, if you were getting alternating response sizes of 4444 and 4448, set the offset to 5 and it will only show the stuff outside the norm.

Adding new params from source:

The following regexes might be useful to parse $_GET or $_POST parameters from source:

$> grep -rioP ‘$_POST[\s[“‘]\s\w+\s[“‘]\s]’ PHPSOURCE | grep -oP ‘$_POST[\s[“‘]\s\w+\s[“‘]\s]’ | sed -e “s/$_POST[\s[“‘]//g” -e “s/\s[‘”]\s*]//g” | sort -u > /tmp/outfile.txt
$> grep -rioP ‘$_GET[\s
[“‘]\s\w+\s[“‘]\s]’ PHPSOURCE | grep -oP ‘$_GET[\s[“‘]\s\w+\s[“‘]\s]’ | sed -e “s/$_GET[\s[“‘]//g” -e “s/\s[‘”]\s*]//g” | sort -u > /tmp/outfile.txt
