Syhunt has launched a very nice and powerful new edition of their Sandcat web application security tool. Sandcat is an extremely thorough and very capable assessment engine for web servers, web applications and web application source code. MSI has been using the tool for many years and we enjoy a very close relationship with the team behind the tool.
In addition to adding new features to the PHP source code scanning, this new release gives users the new capability to do white box testing on web applications for XSS vulnerabilities beyond PHP. The new version now includes cross site scripting checks for classic ASP, ASP.NET and JSP (JavaServer Pages) code modules. Syhunt even plans to further extend the classes of checks in those languages in the coming months. As with PHP source code assessment, this is a very powerful tool for increasing the quality and security of web applications, both new and legacy, around the enterprise.
Check out the new release at http://www.syhunt.com and let them know you heard it about from MSI. The Syhunt team are nice folks and they work very hard to bring you one of the most flexible, powerful and easy to use web application tools on the planet. Give it a shot, we think you’ll become a huge fan too!
