This plugin tries to find out if the web application under test is stored in a shared hosting. The procedure is pretty simple, using bing search engine, the plugin searches for “ip:184.108.40.206” where 220.127.116.11 is the IP address of the webserver. One configurable option exists:
Fetch the first “result_limit” results from the “ip:” bing search.
|result_limit||integer||300||Fetch the first “result_limit” results from the bing search||No detailed help available|
