Testing for Local File Inclusion
Crashtest Security Suite is automated cyber security software that scans your web pages for vulnerabilities in local file inclusion and other issues (RFI).
- Scan for LFI and RFI vulnerabilities and everyone in OWASP Top Ten
- Get security reports and remediation advice for every exposure found
LFI scanner features
Although Local File Inclusion vulnerabilities usually are easy to address, discovering them in huge codebases may be difficult without the correct tools.
Our black-box penetration testing tool will let you discover every vulnerability your web application could have.
Crashtest Security works with no information about your system, precisely as a hacker would do. Still, in this case, you have the opportunity to save money and time on running security manual tests.
Create and verify your scan target.
Configure the credentials for the system and the application.
Create a webhook and start a scan via the CI Integration.
Integrate a chat notification system (Slack, Mattermost, Hangouts, and many more.)

Get reports with remediation guidance, risk assessments, and solutions for every vulnerability discovered.
LFI scanner benefits
- Share vulnerability reports with your team – in PDF, XML/JSON, or CSV formats
- OWASP Top 10 listed vulnerabilities scanner – Identifies possible attack vectors in your web application, API, or microservices.
- Constant Transparency – Enjoy our real-time reporting on all web application deployments – top line or in-depth.
- GDPR compliance – Ensure state-of-the-art PII-related vulnerability testing for every release.
The LFI report begins with a high-level overview of the data breaches found in your scan target, including their magnitude and consequences. There’s a summary of every local file inclusion attack vector and additional security information
Suggestions for remedial work: Each exposure is accompanied by a risk rating, description, and step-by-step directions for resolving the issue.
What is an LFI vulnerability scanner?
The LFI scanner assesses the security of your web application while saving time for developers and time for the business.
We provide a straightforward cybersecurity strategy:
- Because of the reduced time spent on testing preparation and the quick corrective advice offered in the scan report, developers save roughly 100 hours per year.
- You’ll save 40% on testing expenditures on average and maintain continuous security posture transparency while lowering your risk of being hacked.
Note: You must own the site and have valid admin access to scan for local file inclusion vulnerabilities. Because the LFI tool can produce various HTTP Requests that could be detected as attacks (even if they’re completely safe), you’ll need the pertinent authorization to run this tool.
How does LFI Scanner work?
The local file inclusion scanner uses unique payloads to include local or remote files into the web application. If a website has a file inclusion vulnerability, an attacker can read sensitive files like PHP scripts or can even execute arbitrary commands on the webserver
How do I detect local file inclusion vulnerability?
Set up and start scanning in less than 2 minutes.
- Find out the easiest setup possible in the market. You could see if you’re vulnerable to the LFI vulnerability with only one button. Crashtest Security Suite examines your web app in under two minutes and provides a report detailing any bugs discovered.
- A fantastic customer service staff for technical cybersecurity. We go through your LFI test again to ensure you’re implementing our vulnerability software correctly.
- Reduced costs for fixing vulnerabilities. Instead of writing a security patch for code written six months ago, you now get notified about a vulnerability before the deployment: no more hot-fixing production environments.
Local File Inclusion
What is file inclusion?
PHP File Inclusion is a web application security issue that permits unauthorized users to access files, perform downloads, search for information, etc. As described by OWASP, it allows an attacker to include a file by attacking the target application’s “dynamic file inclusion” techniques. The flaw arises from the usage of user-supplied data that hasn’t been appropriately validated.
File inclusion flaws are a golden opportunity for hackers. While various protective procedures are in place to address such flaws, a single positive operation may compromise your mission-critical data and put your organization at risk.
What is local file inclusion?
Local File Inclusion (LFI) is a web browser option that enables an attacker to include files on a server. When a web application contains a file before correctly filtering the input, this vulnerability occurs, allowing an attacker to modify the input, insert jump characters from the route, and provide other files from the webserver. It typically affects PHP applications.
What are the risk of local file inclusion vulnerability?
LFI is harmful, particularly when combined with additional issues, such as the ability of an attacker to submit malicious files to the server. Even if the attacker cannot upload files, they can take control of the entire server or access sensitive information by combining the LFI weakness with a directory traversal flaw. The consequences could include information disclosure or remote code execution as well.
How to prevent local file inclusion vulnerabilities?
Preventing files’ addition based on user input is a great way to stop Local File Inclusion (LFI) vulnerabilities. But if it is not achievable, the app should keep a registry of files that could be included to restrict the cyber attacker’s ability to control what is included.
