[Netsparker v3.0.2.0 Community Edition] Web Application Security Scanner

Thursday, July 11, 2013


Netsparker can crawl, attack and identify vulnerabilities in all custom web applications regardless of the platform and the technology they are built on, just like an actual attacker.

It can identify web application vulnerabilities like SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS), Remote Code Execution and many more. It has exploitation built on it, for example you can get a reverse shell out of an identified SQL Injection or extract data via running custom SQL queries.
