CMSmap is a python open source CMS scanner that automates the process of detecting security flaws of the most popular CMSs. The main purpose of CMSmap is to integrate common vulnerabilities for different types of CMSs in a single tool.

At the moment, CMSs supported by CMSmap are WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Moodle.

Please note that this project is an early state. As such, you might find bugs, flaws or mulfunctions. Use it at your own risk!



You can download the latest version of CMSmap by cloning the GitHub repository:

 git clone

Then you need to configure the edbtype and edbpath settings in the cmsmap.conf. Use GIT if you have a local Git repository of Exploit-db :

edbtype = GIT
edbpath = /opt/exploitdb/

Alternatively, use APT if you have installed the debian exploitdb package. For Kali, use the following settings :

edbtype = APT
edbpath = /usr/share/exploitdb/

If you would like to run cmsmap from anywhere in your system you can install it with pip3 :

cd CMSmap
pip3 install .

To uninstall it :

pip3 uninstall cmsmap -y
