A list of features XSStrike has to offer:
Fuzzes a parameter and builds a suitable payload
Bruteforces paramteres with payloads
Has an inbuilt crawler like functionality
Can reverse engineer the rules of a WAF/Filter
Detects and tries to bypass WAFs
Both GET and POST support
Most of the payloads are hand crafted
Negligible number of false positives
Opens the POC in a browser window
Use the following command to download it
git clone http://ift.tt/2rXG43z
After downloading, navigate to XSStrike directory with the following command
Now install the required modules with the following command
pip install -r requirements.txt
Now you are good to go! Run XSStrike with the following command
You can enter your target URL now but remember, you have to mark the most crucial parameter by inserting “d3v<" in it.
For example: http://ift.tt/2sXfQzC
After you enter your target URL, XSStrike will check if the target is protected by a WAF or not. If its not protected by WAF you will get three options1. Fuzzer: It checks how the input gets reflected in the webpage and then tries to build a payload according to that.
2. Striker: It bruteforces all the parameters one by one and generates the proof of concept in a browser window.
3. Spider: It extracts all the links present in homepage of the target and checks parameters in them for XSS.
4. Hulk: Hulk uses a different approach, it doesn't care about reflection of input. It has a list of polyglots and solid payloads, it just enters them one by one in the target parameter and opens the resulted URL in a browser window.
XSStrike can also bypass WAFs
XSStrike supports POST method too

XSStrike uses code from BruteXSS and Intellifuzzer-XSS, XsSCan.
