The WPScan is a security scanner tool that helps us in the verification of the security and identifies possible vulnerabilities of the WordPress projects, which is made to test the security of web pages developed in WordPress.

With WPScan is possible to do a series of tests like relate the users, break weak passwords, enumerate vulnerabilities of the core and installed plugins and themes.
