Nikto scan: Handling site returning custom file not found page

0 votes
Hi. I am running a Nikto scanner on a website and the problem is that the site is designed to return a custom "file not found" page instead of the standard 404 status. I am not understanding how to handle this.

This is common with complex websites. To handle this, you can specify a particular string that identifies this page by using the -404 option. Something like this:

nikto <options> -404 "<string of the page>"
