As the popularity of the web increases and web applications become tools of everyday use, the role of web security has been gaining importance as well. The last years have shown a significant increase in the number of web-based attacks. For example, there has been extensive press coverage of recent security incidences involving the loss of sensitive credit card information belonging to millions of customers.
Typical web application security vulnerabilities result from generic input validation problems. Examples of such vulnerabilities are SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS). Although the majority of web vulnerabilities are easy to understand and to avoid, many web developers are, unfortunately, not security-aware. As a result, there exist many web sites on the web that are vulnerable.
SecuBat is a generic and modular web vulnerability scanner that, similar to a port scanner, automatically analyzes web sites with the aim of finding exploitable SQL injection and XSS vulnerabilities.
- Windows 2000, XP, 2003 or higher
- .NET Framework 2.0 or higher
- MS SQL Server 2000, 2005, Express, MSDE or higher
- If you schedule a crawling run, you have to restart SecuBat for manually selecting this crawling run for
an attacking run afterwards if you not choose to do a combined run.
- The XSS variants report a not existing vulnerability if the response page contains the injected string within the title tag.
- The “Attack Report” window shows only attacks with an analysis value greater than 0 (indicating a vulnerability).
