Pixy – New & Free Open-source XSS and SQL Injection Scanner for PHP Programs


Cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection (SQLI) vulnerabilities are present in many modern web applications, and are reported continuously on pages such as BugTraq. In the past, finding such vulnerabilities usually involved manual source code audits.

Unfortunately, this manual vulnerability search is a very tiresome and error-prone task.

Pixy is a Java program that performs automatic scans of PHP source code, aimed at the detection of XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities. Pixy takes a PHP program as input, and creates a report that lists possible vulnerable points in the program, together with additional information for understanding the vulnerability.

Features

  • detection of SQL injection and XSS vulnerabilities in PHP source code
  • automatic resolution of file inclusions
  • computation of dependence graphs that help you understand the causes of reported vulnerabilities
  • static analysis engine (flow-sensitive, interprocedural, context-sensitive)
  • platform-independent (written in Java)

    Nice to see a good open source static code analyzer as compare to other commercial products (such as offered by fortify).

    Platform independence and Graph generation features make this tool far better than other products.

    hats off to Pixy developers. kool tool

    Man this tool is sweet!! For several reasons:
    A. Its free
    2. Cross Platform performance roxxx!!
    D. Automation

    I know, I know, the script kiddies will probably wreak havoc with this. But hey, my philosophy is that peeps need to have the vulnerabilities brought out in the open before anyone can close them.
