Lens: ViewState test module

The ViewState tab of Lens provides tools to examine the ViewState and look for information disclosure vulnerabilities.

How to use

  1. Enter a valid URL to the Target URL textbox. You can optionally click to Open to check the URL in your default browser.
  2. Click Extract to download the ViewState from the given URL. The raw ViewState is displayed and the length of the ViewState is displayed in the Output window.
  3. Click Decode to display the hierarchical tree of the objects in the ViewState. If the ViewState is encrypted, a message is displayed in the Output window.
  4. You can switch between the raw and the hierarhical view using the View radio buttons.
  5. You can click on the Expand button to show the whole tree or you can open the tree nodes one by one.
  6. Enter any word you want to search for into the Keyword textbox. The matched items are highlighted in red in the tree.
