Re: Vuln Scanner for Web App Source Code

I think that work by hand is valuable, but there is also room for automated scanning (depending on your language). If you want to work from code-analysis, then you are looking for something called "Static Analysis". One company that does it is FortifySoftware, but I'm sure that there are others.

Automated scanning is especially good for enforcing some best practices and preventing injection attacks (XSS, SQL, LDAP, etc.) but it will always take work to get right.

Hope that helps.
