Short Description
OWASP Juice Shop - An intentionally insecure Javascript Web Application
Full Description

OWASP Juice Shop

The most trustworthy online shop out there.
(@dschadow) —
The best juice shop on the whole internet!
(@shehackspurple) —
Actually the most bug-free vulnerable application in existence!

OWASP Juice Shop is probably the most modern and sophisticated insecure web application! It can be used in security trainings, awareness demos, CTFs and as a guinea pig for security tools! Juice Shop encompasses vulnerabilities from the entire OWASP Top Ten along with many other security flaws found in real-world applications!

For a detailed introduction, full list of features and architecture
overview please visit the official project page:


Deploy on Heroku (free ($0/month) dyno)

  1. Sign up to Heroku and
    log in to your account
  2. Click the button below and follow the instructions

This is the quickest way to get a running instance of Juice Shop! If
you have forked this repository, the deploy button will automatically
pick up your fork for deployment! As long as you do not perform any
DDoS attacks you are free to use any tools or scripts to hack your
Juice Shop instance on Heroku!

From Sources

  1. Install node.js
  2. Run git clone (or
    clone your own fork
    of the repository)
  3. Go into the cloned folder with cd juice-shop
  4. Run npm install (only has to be done before first start or when you
    change the source code)
  5. Run npm start
  6. Browse to http://localhost:3000

Packaged Distributions

  1. Install a 64bit node.js on your
    Windows (or Linux) machine
  2. Download juice-shop-<version>_<node-version>_<os> (or
    .tgz) attached to
    latest release
  3. Unpack and cd into the unpacked folder
  4. Run npm start
  5. Browse to http://localhost:3000

Each packaged distribution includes some binaries for SQLite bound to
the OS and node.js version which npm install was executed on.

Docker Container

  1. Install Docker
  2. Run docker pull bkimminich/juice-shop
  3. Run docker run --rm -p 3000:3000 bkimminich/juice-shop
  4. Browse to http://localhost:3000 (on macOS and Windows browse to if you are using docker-machine instead
    of the native docker installation)

If you want to run Juice Shop on a Raspberry Pi 3, there is an
unofficial Docker image available at which is based on
resin/rpi-raspbian and maintained by

Even easier: Run Docker Container from Docker Toolbox (Kitematic)

  1. Install and launch
    Docker Toolbox
  2. Search for juice-shop and click Create to download image and run
  3. Click on the Open icon next to Web Preview to browse to OWASP
    Juice Shop


  1. Install Vagrant and
  2. Run git clone (or
    clone your own fork
    of the repository)
  3. Run cd vagrant && vagrant up
  4. Browse to

There is a very convenient Vagrant box available at (:microscope:)
from @commjoen which comes with latest
Docker containers of the OWASP Juice Shop,
and other vulnerable web applications as well as pentesting tools like

Amazon EC2 Instance

  1. Setup an Amazon Linux AMI instance
  2. In Step 3: Configure Instance Details unfold Advanced Details and
    copy the script below into User Data
  3. In Step 6: Configure Security Group add a Rule that opens port 80
    for HTTP
  4. Launch instance
  5. Browse to your instance's public DNS
yum update -y
yum install -y docker
service docker start
docker pull bkimminich/juice-shop
docker run -d -p 80:3000 bkimminich/juice-shop

Technically Amazon could view hacking activity on any EC2 instance as
an attack on their AWS infrastructure! We highly discourage aggressive
scanning or automated brute force attacks! You have been warned!

Azure Container Instance

  1. Open and login (via az login) to your
    Azure CLI or login to
    the Azure Portal, open the CloudShell
    and then choose Bash (not PowerShell).
  2. Create a resource group by running az group create --name <group name> --location <location name, e.g. "centralus">
  3. Create a new container by running az container create --resource-group <group name> --name <container name> --image bkimminich/juice-shop --dns-name-label <dns name label> --ports 3000 --ip-address public
  4. Your container will be available at http://<dns name label>.<location name>

detailed walkthrough with screenshots
by @JasonHaley. You can alternatively
follow his guide to
set up OWASP Juice Shop as an Azure Web App for Containers.

Node.js version compatibility

OWASP Juice Shop officially supports the following versions of
node.js in line as close as possible with the
official node.js LTS schedule. Docker
images and packaged distributions are offered accordingly:

node.js Docker image Packaged distributions
11.x juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node11_linux_x64.tgz
10.x latest (current official release), snapshot (preview from develop branch) juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node10_linux_x64.tgz
9.x juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node9_linux_x64.tgz
8.x juice-shop-<version>, juice-shop-<version>_node8_linux_x64.tgz


Feel free to have a look at the latest version of OWASP Juice Shop:

This is a deployment-test and sneak-peek instance only! You are not
to use this instance for your own hacking endeavours! No
guaranteed uptime! Guaranteed stern looks if you break it!


Via a YAML configuration file in /config, the OWASP Juice Shop can be
customized in its content and look & feel.

For detailed instructions and examples please refer to
our Customization documentation.


If you want to run OWASP Juice Shop as a Capture-The-Flag event, we
recommend you set it up along with a CTFd server
conveniently using the official

For step-by-step instructions and examples please refer to
the Hosting a CTF event chapter
of our companion guide ebook.

XSS Demo

To show the possible impact of
XSS), you
can download this
and run docker-compose up to start the juice-shop and the
shake-logger. Assume you received and (of course) clicked
this inconspicuous phishing link
and login. Apart from the visual/audible effect, the attacker also
installed an input logger to grab
credentials! This could easily run on a 3rd party server in real life!

You can also find a recording of this attack in action on YouTube:
