Re: Pointers to Free Web Vulnerability Scanners for Blackbox testing



1. What are the important things to remember while doing blackbox web app testing?
You need to define a scope (perhaps one has been defined for you
already) and stay within scope. If there is something interesting
slightly outside of it; make a quick note (in case you want to come
back to it and move on).

2. Suggest some best free tools which are available to perform the test?
WASP security guide, Paros proxy, Charles proxy (not free), Burp
proxy, Notepad++, a scripting language of your choice. Depends on what
you are doing...

3. Where do i find the recommendation in case the tools reports various vulns in the site?
Google? Or ask the guy who has assigned you to the project.


4. What is the traffic generated on the site due to the test?
As much as you generate with those best free tools of yours.


From the above questions (and please don't take it the wrong way) but
perhaps you are not the best person for the task?
