Using WebScarab with WebGoat
Start up WebScarab. It may be in basic mode.
If it is, Go to Tools->Use Full Interface.
Fire up IE and go to Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN settings.
- Check Use proxy server and set address to localhost port 8008.
- Click OK and OK.
On WebScarab go to Proxy->Manual Edit. Check Intercept Requests. Select GET and POST (using the CTRL key to select both).
In IE go to http://localhost./WebGoat/attack. (notice the dot after localhost, it is required to apply proxy settings on localhost.) WebScarab should already start intercepting. The lessons should work after that. I was able to do a command injection following the steps in the solution. I have now put the proxy settings back to the way they were and shut down WebGoat (for security reasons, not sure if that was necessary but I did it.)
