PyPI GitHub release (latest by date) Python pip build YouTube Channel Subscribers


  • Multithreaded workers to search for Apache tomcat servers.
  • Multiple target source possible:
    • Retrieving list of computers from a Windows domain through an LDAP query to use them as a list of targets.
    • Reading targets line by line from a file.
    • Reading individual targets (IP/DNS/CIDR) from -tt/--target option.
  • Custom list of ports to test.
  • Tests for /manager/html access and default credentials.
  • List the CVEs of each version with the --list-cves option


You can now install it from pypi (latest version is PyPI) with this command:

sudo python3 -m pip install apachetomcatscanner
