announcing skipfish, an automated web app security scanner



Hi folks,

I am happy to announce the availability of skipfish - our open-source,
fully automated, active web application scanner. There are several
things that probably make it interesting:

1) High speed: pure C code, highly optimized HTTP handling, minimal
CPU footprint - easily achieving 2000 requests per second with
responsive targets.

2) Ease of use: heuristics to support a variety of quirky web
frameworks and mixed-technology sites, with automatic learning
capabilities, on-the-fly wordlist creation, and form autocompletion.

3) Cutting-edge security logic: high quality, low false positive,
differential security checks, capable of spotting a range of subtle
flaws, including blind injection vectors.
