-- It is now possible to find out which software was used during the creation of a certain website. This has been made possible by the launch of CMS fingerprinting service by Struct.it. It may be recalled that this website is a preferred online destination for malware researchers, pen testers, and system administrators looking to find out exhaustive technical information about websites including software, IP, domain, etc. The range of service available in this website includes Reverse IP, Reverse IPV6, Domain Information, and now, CMS Fingerprinting.
The just launched reconnaissance service from Struct.it will help users unveil the technologies used to create a website. This service can identify much more different things than any other existing software available now. The process for identifying software was always time consuming and required thorough technical knowledge. The new service not only makes it simpler and precise, but it can help in cases where software isn't well known to the researcher, and can't be identified by human. The list of details available from the service includes Google Analytics, CDN, themes, plugins, and CMS related information. At present, the database of the website consists of as many as 3871 identifiers, and almost 137,000 patterns for them. Information can be generated for each of these identifiers.
The CEO of the company Ivanov Anton is a network security expert and programmer. He is the chief architect of the website, assisted by a small but proficient team. The team started collecting data for their site in 2010, and within a year they understood that this information can be helpful to others, too. As a result, the very first version of the website was released in January, 2011. Talking about their new service launch, Ivanov said, "We have put all our knowledge into this service to make it best in the industry. Hopefully our users will find it useful".
