OWASP Wapiti Project
Wapiti allows you to audit the security of your web applications. It performs "black-box" scans, i.e. it does not study the source code of the application but will scan the webpages of the deployed webapp, looking for scripts and forms where it can inject data. Wapiti acts like a fuzzer, injecting payloads to see if a script is vulnerable.
Web application vulnerability scanner / security auditor.
Wapiti allows to audit the security of web applications in an easy way. It performs a "black-box" scans acting like a fuzzer, injecting payloads to see if an application is vulnerable. It has two principal parts, a crawler that explores the pages of the application and the attack module that injects the payloads and evaluates their responses. Wapiti is easy to use and it can detect the most common vulnerabilities (XSS, SQL Injection, File Handler Errors...). It provides to the user a complete report (html format) with the found vulnerabilities.
OWASP Wapiti Project is free to use. It is licensed under the GNU Library or Lesser General Public License (LGPL).
