The first step in attacking a Word Press site involves gathering information about the installation.To check for directory indexing you can browse to folder locations and see if you get a response that includes "Index Of" and a list of folders / files.Common locations to check would be: - the next step in information gathering phase where we attempt to find installed plugins and versions is becomes much easier!There are known security issues even in some of the most recent releases of Word Press core, so check the discovered version against the known vulnerabilities.Even if you are unable to find any good exploits for the version of Word Press core, knowing the installation is running anything older than the latest release indicates that the site may not be closely managed - in which case the chance of exploitation elsewhere has increased considerably.The numbers of installations keep growing; there are literally millions of Word Press installations.This popularity makes it a juicy target for bad guys aiming to use a compromised web server for malicious purposes.This information file contains the version of Word Press right there at the top.It is common to find the version of the installation through one of these two techniques.Directory indexing is a function of the web server that allows you to view the contents of a directory in the web accessible path.Viewing the contents of a directory allows an unauthorised user to gather a lot of information about the installation such as which plugins and themes have been installed.
