OWASP Damn Vulnerable Web Sockets (DVWS) is a vulnerable web application which works on web sockets for client-server communication. The flow of the application is similar to DVWA. You will find more vulnerabilities than the ones listed in the application.
|– Added heartbeat functionality in “ws-socket.php” file|
|– Updated heartbeat command in “index.php” file|
|– Updated formatting in “index.php” file|

Sample entry for hosts file:
The application requires the following:
Apache + PHP + MySQL
PHP with MySQLi support
Note: Ratchet and ReactPHP-MySQL are packaged inside DVWS. Separate installation might not be required.
Setting up DVWS
git clone https://github.com/interference-security/DVWS.git
Set the MySQL hostname, username, password and an existing database name in the includes/connect-db.php file then go to Setup to finish setting up DVWS.
On the host running this application, run the following command from DVWS directory: php ws-socket.php
DVWS has been developed with limited knowledge of Web Sockets. Feel free to contribute and enhance this project.
