SWFScan – Free Flash Application Security Scanner


HP SWFScan is a free tool developed by HP Web Security Research Group, which will automatically find security vulnerabilities in applications built on the Flash platform.

HP is offering SWFScan because:

  • Their research shows that developers and increasingly implementing applications built on the Adobe Flash platform without the required security expertise.
  • As a result, they are seeing a proliferation of insecure applications being deployed on the web.
  • A vulnerable application built on the Flash platform widens your website’s attack surface creating more opportunity for malicious hackers.

How SWFScan works and what vulnerabilities it finds:

  • Decompiles applications built on the Adobe Flash platform to extract the ActionScript code and statically analyzes it to identify security issues such as information disclosure.
  • Identifies and reports insecure programming and deployment practices and suggests solutions.
  • Enables you to audit third party applications without requiring access to the source code.

You can download SWFScan here:

    I have used this tool a couple of times for my own interest, it is very good and amazing what developers think they can hide right there in the flash code. Stuff like file system paths, and passwords, crazy.
