i have a simple page made that has a user name and password field... I am trying to construct a script to brute force it until it gets the right password.
The only thing I am having trouble with getting started is how can I engage the web form with a script in order to input the values for the password? At first I thought about making a Perl script that puts in a password and cycles through the possibilities... but I would have to click 'Submit' each time...
I figure I could just throw the correct http POST headers to the recieving cgi script on the server but I'm not exactly sure how I could do that.
Is there way to Telnet to a webpage that has a form on it? Or could I do this with expect some how? I just need to figure out the easiest way to interface with the form input fields through a script.
