As you may have come to know about this tool why developers have created this tool. All we have to do is give the path of the php project that we want to investigate and it will identify all the vulnerability by itself.

Usage 🙂 !! python3 phpvuln.py -p < your path of php code >

Also you can use the following command if you want to find a specific vulnerability in PHP code.

Usage 🙂 !! python3 phpvuln.py -p < your path of php code > -v < vuln name >
