bodhi: Client-Side Vulnerability Playground

Bodhi – Client-Side Vulnerability Playground

Bodhi is a playground focused on learning the exploitation of client-side web vulnerabilities. The playground has a vulnerable application & a bot program which simulates the real-world victim. An attacker will have knowledge of the vulnerability and will send crafted payload which will be accessed by the victim. The attacker needs to complete objective by exploiting these vulnerabilities.

The playground is a CTF style application where the objective is to read the flag available for each vulnerability. Main vulnerability page has detailed information about scenarios & test accounts to be used.
