Skavenger – Source Code Auditing Tool!


Skavenger? Yes, because scavenger is already used?!?

What is skavenger? Skavenger is a source code auditing tool, firstly though for php, but also used for any kind of source code file; as long as you know what to look for…

Yes I thought is as a replacement tool for egrep/sed under Windows! because not everybody installs cygwin (for example) under there windows boxes to perform source code auditing. I’ve seen people who most of the time used notepad to audit source code!

And more…
Skavenger is more than a replacement for egrep/sed because it has the ability to parse conforming to a regular expression or a series of regular expressions more than one file; even a directory; and prints out line number… isn’t that sup4 l33t?


Anyway… for download and more info check out http://code.google.com/p/skavenger/, because you can have a lot of fun with it; did I mention it was a console application?

P.S. You need php in order to use this script. Default values in regex.def check for primordial sql injection and XSS….

Happy auditing!

    Hey man, this kind of tools existed for ages … You didn’t invent anything … Check DAphpscan http://mgsdl.free.fr/?2:0, I did not try your tool but the one I’m posting is really *really* shit, but it’s exactly what you’ve just release. Now the difference that may do that your tool becomes good is the regex you’ve put in.

    Peace.

    php skavenger.php -r “/.*invent.*/i” -f darknet-article

    Wierd it seems I never said invent?! I never said it’s new?! Oh yes I know, someone wasn’t attentive…

    DAphpscan a.k.a. php source code auditing tool
    Skavenger a.k.a. *source* code auditing tool

    What? There is a difference?

    It is not a replacement for specialized code auditing tools for specific languages like: SpikeSource, PMD, LAPSE (more info! search box on the right)

    This script is for those who know what to look for in a source code, as said a replacement to egrep/sed (you know there are people who audit with them)…. was I evil?

    With -Bogwitch-

    Any tools helping me to audit my make shift code is welcome.
    OK I am able to filter out the most common mistakes made, but that hardly makes up for the tons of other not so obvious errors put in while burning the midnight oil.
