What is CMSeeK?

CMSeeK is an open source penetration testing tool to automate the process of detecting various types of CMS and its installed extensions. Only the Joomla CMS is supported by secureCodeBox. CMSeeK has a database with known vulnerabilities.

To learn more about the CMSeeK scanner itself, visit the CMSeeK GitHub repository here.

Deployment

The cmseek chart can be deployed via helm:

# Install HelmChart (use -n to configure another namespace)
helm upgrade --install cmseek secureCodeBox/cmseek

Scanner Configuration

The CMSeeK targets are specified with the -u parameter. The target should be a URL.

Additional CMSeeK scan features can be configured via the parameter attribute.

Some useful example parameters listed below:

  • -u URL, --url URL : Target Url.
  • --follow-redirect : Follows all/any redirect(s).
  • --no-redirect : skips all redirects and tests the input target(s)
  • -r, --random-agent: Use a random user agent.
  • --googlebot: Use Google bot user agent.
  • --user-agent USER_AGENT: Specify a custom user agent

Requirements

Kubernetes: >=v1.11.0-0

scanner.activeDeadlineSecondsstringnilThere are situations where you want to fail a scan Job after some amount of time. To do so, set activeDeadlineSeconds to define an active deadline (in seconds) when considering a scan Job as failed. (see: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/controllers/job/#job-termination-and-cleanup)

scanner.backoffLimitint3There are situations where you want to fail a scan Job after some amount of retries due to a logical error in configuration etc. To do so, set backoffLimit to specify the number of retries before considering a scan Job as failed. (see: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/controllers/job/#pod-backoff-failure-policy)
scanner.envlist[]Optional environment variables mapped into each scanJob (see: https://kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/inject-data-application/define-environment-variable-container/)

scanner.securityContext.capabilities.drop[0]string"all"This drops all linux privileges from the container.
scanner.securityContext.privilegedboolfalseEnsures that the scanner container is not run in privileged mode
scanner.securityContext.readOnlyRootFilesystemboolfalsePrevents write access to the containers file system
scanner.securityContext.runAsNonRootbooltrueEnforces that the scanner image is run as a non root user
