  • w3afAgent, a reverse VPN that allows you to route packets through the compromised server

    I wish they’d sort out the annoying tidy issue:

    [daniel@touchme ~]$ w3af
    You have to install utidy lib.
    Error: No module named tidy

    even when utidy is installed and working

    When unpacking, my virusscanner trips over PHISH/Paypalfraud.T

    Never seem a program that just focuses on this. Thanks for the post Darknet.

    I have a quick question, by web vulnerability tool do you mean programs that operate within a webpage or actual exploits for the webpage you are viewing (or something else I am completely missing)?
