Forced Browse

ZAP allows you to try to discover directories and files using forced browsing.
A set of files are provided which contain a large number of file and directory names.
ZAP attempts to directly access all of the files and directories listed in the selected file directly rather than relying on finding links to them.

Forced Browse is configured using the Options Forced Browse screen.

This functionality is based on code from the OWASP DirBuster project.
