Headerpwn – A Fuzzer For Finding Anomalies And Analyzing How Servers Respond To Different HTTP Headers

To install headerpwn, run the following command:

go install github.com/devanshbatham/[email protected]

headerpwn allows you to test various headers on a target URL and analyze the responses. Here’s how to use the tool:

  1. Provide the target URL using the -url flag.
  2. Create a file containing the headers you want to test, one header per line. Use the -headers flag to specify the path to this file.

Example usage:

headerpwn -url https://example.com -headers my_headers.txt
  • Format of my_headers.txt should be like below:
Proxy-Authenticate: foobar
Proxy-Authentication-Required: foobar
Proxy-Authorization: foobar
Proxy-Connection: foobar
Proxy-Host: foobar
Proxy-Http: foobar

The headers.txt file is compiled from various sources, including the <a href="https://github.com/danielmiessler/SecLists“>Seclists project. These headers are used for testing purposes and provide a variety of scenarios for analyzing how servers respond to different headers.
