Sandcat by Syhunt – Web Server & Application Vulnerability Scanner

Outsmart Malicious Hackers

Sandcat allows web administrators to perform aggressive and comprehensive scans of an organization’s web server to isolate vulnerabilities and identify security holes.

The Sandcat scanner requires basic inputs such as host names, start URLs and port numbers to scan a complete web site and test all the web applications for security vulnerabilities.

This is a pretty nifty and complete tool, there is a ‘pro’ version available too.


Key Features

  • Provides over 260 web application security checks, covering over 38 types of web security attacks — a target server can be local or remote
  • Crawls web sites and detects cross-site scripting, directory transversal problems, attempts to execute commands and multiple other attacks
  • Scans web servers for the SANS Top Twenty (C1), the OWASP Top 10 and the OWASP PHP Top 5 vulnerabilities
  • Allows to scan for specific vulnerabilities, such as Fault Injection, SQL Injection and XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) vulnerabilities
  • Allows to define a range or list of IP addresses to be scanned
  • Allows to define multiple start URLs
  • Allows to perform destructive and non-destructive scans
  • Allows to edit the crawling depth: maximum number of links per server, maximum links per page, maximum URL length and maximum response size and more
  • Allows to create user signatures for detecting application vulnerabilities
  • Prevents logout
  • Tests intrusion detection systems
  • Exploits AJAX-based web applications
  • Supports host authentication (basic and web form authentication)
  • Supports OSVDB, NVD, CVE and CWE
  • Stores and allows you to view the HTTP request and response for each successful test
  • Automatically discovers and analyzes the server’s configuration to determine which tests are needed
  • Analyzes robots.txt file and javascript
  • Includes a Baseline Security Scanner — ensures security against outdated server software

    Hi All

    Any stats on the accuracy of this tool.. I tried this tool on 2 different php websites last night. Both are highly vulnerable to XSS & SQL Injection atacks (I know for sure as i developed these websites for testing purposes).. Although this tool correctly found the web server information but reported 0 XSS vulnerabilities and 0 sql injection vulnerabilities.

    Please let me know if anyone else found it more useful.

    Interesting results Sandeep.

    Has anyone else had chance to try it out and verify it’s reliability?
