Top 10 Web Vulnerability Scanners

After the tremendously successful 2000 and 2003
security tools surveys, Insecure.Org is delighted to
release this 2006 survey. I (Fyodor) asked users
from the nmap-hackers
mailing list to share their favorite tools, and 3,243 people
responded. This allowed me to expand the list to 100 tools, and even
subdivide them into categories. This is the category page for web vulnerability scanners — the full network security list is available here. Anyone in the security field
would be well advised to go over the list and investigate tools they
are unfamiliar with. I discovered several powerful new tools this
way. I also point newbies to this site whenever they write
me saying “I don’t know where to start”.

Respondents were allowed to list open source or commercial tools on
any platform. Commercial tools are noted as such in the list below.
No votes for the Nmap Security
Scanner
were counted because the survey was taken on a Nmap
mailing list. This audience also biases the list slightly
toward “attack” hacking tools rather than defensive ones.

Each tool is described by one ore more attributes:

new Did not appear on the 2003 list
Generally costs money. A free limited/demo/trial version may be available.
Linux Works natively on Linux
*BSD Works natively on OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Solaris, and/or other UNIX variants
OS X Works natively on Apple Mac OS X
Windows Works natively on Microsoft Windows
Command-line interface Features a command-line interface
GUI Interface Offers a GUI (point and click) interface
Source code Source code available for inspection.

Please send updates and suggestions (or better tool logos) to Fyodor. If your tool is featured or you think your site visitors might enjoy this list, you are welcome to use our link banners.
Here is the list, starting with the most popular:

Nikto : A more comprehensive web scannerNikto is an open source (GPL) web server scanner which performs comprehensive tests against web servers for multiple items, including over 3200 potentially dangerous files/CGIs, versions on over 625 servers, and version specific problems on over 230 servers. Scan items and plugins are frequently updated and can be automatically updated (if desired). It uses Whisker/libwhisker for much of its underlying functionality. It is a great tool, but the value is limited by its infrequent updates. The newest and most critical vulnerabilities are often not detected.

Paros proxy : A web application vulnerability assessment proxyA Java based web proxy for assessing web application vulnerability. It supports editing/viewing HTTP/HTTPS messages on-the-fly to change items such as cookies and form fields. It includes a web traffic recorder, web spider, hash calculator, and a scanner for testing common web application attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting.

WebScarab : A framework for analyzing applications that communicate using the HTTP and HTTPS protocolsIn its simplest form, WebScarab records the conversations (requests and responses) that it observes, and allows the operator to review them in various ways. WebScarab is designed to be a tool for anyone who needs to expose the workings of an HTTP(S) based application, whether to allow the developer to debug otherwise difficult problems, or to allow a security specialist to identify vulnerabilities in the way that the application has been designed or implemented.

Windows

GUI Interface


WebInspect : A Powerful Web Application ScannerSPI Dynamics’ WebInspect application security assessment tool helps identify known and unknown vulnerabilities within the Web application layer. WebInspect can also help check that a Web server is configured properly, and attempts common web attacks such as parameter injection, cross-site scripting, directory traversal, and more.

#5
Linux*BSD

OS X

Windows

Command-line interface

Source code

Whisker/libwhisker : Rain.Forest.Puppy’s CGI vulnerability scanner and libraryLibwhisker is a Perl module geared geared towards HTTP testing. It provides functions for testing HTTP servers for many known security holes, particularly the presence of dangerous CGIs. Whisker is a scanner that used libwhisker but is now deprecated in favor of Nikto which also uses libwhisker.

#6
newLinux

OS X

Windows

GUI Interface

Burpsuite : An integrated platform for attacking web applicationsBurp suite allows an attacker to combine manual and automated techniques to enumerate, analyze, attack and exploit web applications. The various burp tools work together effectively to share information and allow findings identified within one tool to form the basis of an attack using another.

#7

GUI Interface

Wikto : Web Server Assessment ToolWikto is a tool that checks for flaws in webservers. It provides much the same functionality as Nikto but adds various interesting pieces of functionality, such as a Back-End miner and close Google integration. Wikto is written for the MS .NET environment and registration is required to download the binary and/or source code.

#8

Windows

GUI Interface


Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner : Commercial Web Vulnerability ScannerAcunetix WVS automatically checks your web applications for vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection, cross site scripting, and weak password strength on authentication pages. Acunetix WVS boasts a comfortable GUI and an ability to create professional website security audit reports.

#9

Windows

GUI Interface


Watchfire AppScan : Commercial Web Vulnerability ScannerAppScan provides security testing throughout the application development lifecycle, easing unit testing and security assurance early in the development phase. Appscan scans for many common vulnerabilities, such as cross site scripting, HTTP response splitting, parameter tampering, hidden field manipulation, backdoors/debug options, buffer overflows and more.

#10
Windows

GUI Interface

N-Stealth : Web server scannerN-Stealth is a commercial web server security scanner. It is generally updated more frequently than free web scanners such as Whisker/libwhisker and Nikto, but do take their web site with a grain of salt. The claims of “30,000 vulnerabilities and exploits” and “Dozens of vulnerability checks are added every day” are highly questionable. Also note that essentially all general VA tools such as Nessus, ISS Internet Scanner, Retina, SAINT, and Sara include web scanning components. They may not all be as up-to-date or flexible though. N-Stealth is Windows only and no source code is provided.
