pFuzz - Helps Us To Bypass Web Application Firewall By Using Different Methods At The Same Time

pFuzz is an advanced red teaming fuzzing tool which we developed for our research. It helps us to bypass web application firewall by using different methods at the same time.

pFuzz web uygulama araştırmaları için geliştirdiğimiz, gelişmiş bir fuzzing aracıdır. Farklı güvenlik uygulamaları üzerinde çeşitli saldırı yöntemlerinin denenmesi konusunda süreci hızlandırmak için geliştirilmiştir.


pFuzz is a tool developed in the python language to have advanced fuzzing capability in web application research. Since the application has a modular structure, it has the ability to quickly add new found / to be found WAF bypassing methods to pFuzz and test it on all other WAFs. In addition to a modular structure, multi-threading, multi-processing and queue structures have been used to make the tool more flexible and the infrastructure has been created for future developments.

The tool is programmed so that a given request can be parsed and easily changed over an object. Thanks to this structure, those who will develop the application will be able to contribute easily and develop the tool in line with their own needs without changing the core structure of the application without having to learn.

Note: If you want to contribute to the development, you can do it not only developing pFuzz but also adding new modules. Feel free to open new PR :)

How to Develop a New Module
  • A python file that specifies the name of the module should be created inside modules/ folder.
- modules
  • You can use the parsed object like myreq = HTTPReq.getobj()
from reqparser import HTTPReq
myreq = HTTPReq.getobj()
  • It has many attributes derivated from HTTPReq class. You can them it in
  • If you want to get your payloads from the excel, you can use getpayloads methods coming from modules.exparse.

    • getpayloads(fuzzsheetName, genericcolmnName, fuzzingpayloads)
    from modules.exparse import getpayloads
    getpayloads(fuzzsheetName, genericcolmnName, fuzzingpayloads)
    • We set statics-objects like fuzzsheetName in that is under static/ folder.
    Fuzzing Module in static/ fuzzsheetName = 'Fuzzing' genericcolmnName = 'Payload' fuzzingpayloads = [] ">
    # Fuzzing Module in static/
    fuzzsheetName = 'Fuzzing'
    genericcolmnName = 'Payload'
    fuzzingpayloads = []
  • Now, you can change/add/delete attributes whatever you want.

myreq.uri = tmpuri + payload
myreq.addheader(header, "")
myreq.content_type = "text/html"
  • To stop multi-threading, you should add #exitme# payload to the end of your payloads and set statics.exitCall = True to check whether queue is empty or not.
from modules.exparse import getpayloads
for payload in fuzzingpayloads:
if payload == '#exitme#':
statics.exitCall = True
  • When your object(request) is ready to be sent, you can use sendit() function to queue it.
from reqsender import sendit
  • If you need to change core functions in pFuzz, you can start a pull request or open an issue.

Some Important Functions to Develop New Modules
Aim Module/Class Function Parameter(s)
To send a request  sendit() object
To use a request object  getobj()   -
To add a custom header  OBJECT.addheader()  newHeadername,value
To delete a header  OBJECT.delheader()  headerName
To change a header  OBJECT.changeheader() headerName,newHeaderName
To get a payload from the file  getpayloads()  sheetName,columnName
To write a log info/debug/warning  loginfo/logdebug/logwarn()  logMessage

What WAFs did we bypass?
  • FortiWeb
  • Cloudflare
  • Sucuri
  • Akamai
  • Imperva
  • F5 WAF
