vaf – advanced web fuzzer


very advanced fuzzer


  • Grep
  • Status code filtering
  • Detect reflexivness (useful for finding xss)
  • Prefix, suffixes
  • Custom wordlists
  • Fuzz any part of the url
  • POST support
  • URL encode payload
  • Print requested URL (useful for debugging)
  • Much more to come


There will also be a vaf_linux_amd64 binary for linux users already compiled by me, but that’s not going to be always updated

  1. Clone and cd into the repo
  2. Install nim

Linux: Install nim using: curl -sSf | sh and adding nim to path

Windows: Download nim from and run finish.exe (you might need to reopen a cmd window for nim to load)

  1. Run
nimble build

A vaf binary file will be created in your directory ready to be used

using vaf

using vaf is simple, here’s the current help text:

  -u, --url=URL              choose url, replace area to fuzz with []
  -w, --wordlist=WORDLIST    choose the wordlist to use
  -sc, --status=STATUS       set on which status to print, set this param to 'any' to print on any status (default: 200)
  -pr, --prefix=PREFIX       prefix, e.g. set this to / for content discovery if your url doesnt have a / at the end (default: )
  -sf, --suffix=SUFFIX       suffix, e.g. use this for extensions if you are doing content discovery (default: )
  -pd, --postdata=POSTDATA   only used if '-m post' is set (default: {})
  -m, --method=METHOD        the method to use post/get, in lowercase, get is default (default: get)
  -g, --grep=GREP            greps for a string in the response (default: )

  -ue, --urlencode           url encode the payloads
  -pu, --printurl            prints the url that has been requested



(with every status code printed, suffixes .php,.html and no prefixes)

main post

(post data fuzzing)


(grep functionality)


Fuzz post data:

vaf.exe -w example_wordlists\short.txt -u -m post -sc 201 -pd "{\"title\": \"[]\"}"


vaf.exe -w example_wordlists\short.txt -u[] -sf .html


  • Add a trailing , in the suffixes or prefixes argument to try the word without any suffix/prefix like this: -pf .php, or -sf .php,
  • Use -pif with a bunch of xss payloads as the wordlist to find XSS
  • Make an issue if you want to suggest a feature
