PoC version

Compile Raptor WAF

$ git clone https://github.com/CoolerVoid/raptor_waf$ cd raptor_waf; make; bin/raptor

Note : Don’t execute with “cd bin; ./raptor” use full path “bin/raptor”. Need lib pcre to compile.


Up some HTTPd server at port 80 redirect with raptor to port 8883

$ bin/Raptor -h localhost -p 80 -r 8883 -w 4 -o loglog.txt

Copy vulnerable PHP code to your web server directory

$ cp doc/test_dfa/test.php /var/www/html

Now you can test xss attacks at http://localhost:8883/test.php

Other option to run(now with regex, look file config/regex_rules.txt to edit rules):

$ bin/Raptor -h -p 80 -r 8883 -w 0 -o resultwaf -m pcre
