[Netsparker v3.2] Web Application Security Scanner

Saturday, January 25, 2014

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.

The main highlight of this version is the web services scanner; now scan and identify vulnerabilities and security issues in web services automatically and easily.
