Find your website's Achilles' Heel

    I really like this. Simple and brutally effective.

    Thanks Darknet!

    This kind of scanner will produce many false positives to be really useful. Another problem not tackled with graudit is the problem with proned custom-made functions.

    Did anyone found a (non-trivial) bug with graudit?

    Hello,

    I am the author of the aforementioned software. Version 1.2 has just been released which seriously reduces the number of false positives. The default rule set now focuses on lower hanging fruit.

    I have found SQLi, RFI and command execution in popular web apps with graudit.

    Version 1.2+ will address custom functions (it’s on github, but not in release).
