This tool helps you to find hack attempts within webserver log files (e.g. Apache2 access logs).
#!/usr/bin/python
# Description:
# This tool helps you to find hack attempts
# within webserver log files (e.g. Apache2 access logs).
# Features:
# - Error handling
# - Scan a log file for four different attack types
# - Display a short scan report
# - Write scan results to a new log file
# - Easy to use (everything is simple and automated
# Usage example:
# scan_log.py -file vhost_access.log
# Known issue:
# XSS attempt discovery feature can be a little bit buggy.
# Disclaimer:
# I am not responsible if this script or you cause any damage
# to your system. The memory consumption can become
# quite large and the generated reports very huge. So be sure
# you know what you are doing. I highly recommend you
# download your log files on a separate machine and
# analyze these files there.
# I know that there are much better tools, but well, I do
# this for learning and fun =)
# Attention: Tool is far away from being perfect, so don't rely a 100 percent on it.
# A BIG "Thank you!" to all who publish their awesome Python
# scripts online and help other ppl learning this language.
# Modify, distribute, share and copy this code in any way you like!
# Power to the cows!
