I have just made a WordPress plugin and I would like to scan it for OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, any resources on how to get started here?

Try https://hackertarget.com/vulnerability-scanner/ it has many other testing tools as well, some are free and others paid.


Check out WPScan. It's normally used as a command line scan tool but there's also a wordpress plugin, which can make your life easier. They have a series of automated scripts that search your website for vulnerabilities and warn you if it finds any. I just don't know how well does it work on plugins, but it's great for overall site vulnerabilities.

It's based on the WPScan Wordpress Vulnerability Database.

  • Does it actually scan? It sounds like it just compares component versions against a known-compromised database.
