Not able to run nikto scan on nikto-test.com

0 votes

Hi. I am new to nikto and was reading a blog. It was said that like nmap has scanme.nmap.org, nikto has nitko-test.org and I can scan it. But when I try to scan it using

$ nikto -host nikto-test.com

I am getting the following error

- Nikto v2.1.6
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ ERROR: Cannot resolve hostname 'nikto-test.com'
+ 0 host(s) tested

Hi, the webpage nikto-test.com doesn’t exist anymore. Open a web browser and try to visit that link, it says page not found. And that’s why nikto is not able to scan it.
