List of free Web Application Security Scanner

List of Free Download Open Source Web Application Security Scanner Tools

1. Grabber by Romain Gaucher
Grabber is a web application scanner. Basically it detects some kind of vulnerabilities in your website. Grabber is simple, not fast but portable and really adaptable. This software is designed to scan small websites such as personals, forums etc. absolutely not big application: it would take too long time and flood your network. Grabber is a very small application (currently 2.5kLOC in Python) and the first reason of this scanner is to have a "minimum bar" scanner for the Samate Tool Evaluation Program at NIST. Grabber is also for me a nice way to do some automatics verification on websites/scripts I do. Users should know some things about web vulnerabilities before using this soft because it only tell you what vulnerability it is... not how to solve it.

2. Grendel-Scan by David Byrne and Eric Duprey
Grendel-Scan is an open-source web application security testing tool. It has automated testing module for detecting common web application vulnerabilities, and features geared at aiding manual penetration tests. The only system requirement is Java 5; Windows, Linux and Macintosh builds are available.

3. Paros by Chinotec
Paros is for people who need to evaluate the security of their web applications. It is free of charge and completely written in Java. Through Paros's proxy nature, all HTTP and HTTPS data between server and client, including cookies and form fields, can be intercepted and modified.

4. Powerfuzzer by Marcin Kozlowski
Powerfuzzer is a highly automated and fully customizable web fuzzer (HTTP protocol based application fuzzer) based on many other Open Source fuzzers available and information gathered from numerous security resources and websites. It was designed to be user friendly, modern, effective and working. Yes, there was a gap on the market in that arena and that's why Powerfuzzer project was created. It is capable of spidering website and identifying inputs. From practical view, pen tester point of view, it can be considered a Web Application Vulnerability Scanner, however given its design and specifications it has much more potential.

5. SecurityQA Toolbar by iSEC Partners
The SecurityQA Toolbar is a testing product for web application security. During the QA phase of the SDLC, quality assurance groups can use the toolbar to perform security/regression testing.
The toolbar allows both security and non-security professionals to test web applications. The product has been intuitively designed as a toolbar, allowing users to test each page of an application, similar to functional testing procedures used for large enterprise applications. The toolbar can execute several application security tests per page or per application, each resulting in an HTML report with identified security issues and mitigation strategies.

6. W3AF by Andres Riancho
w3af is a Web Application Attack and Audit Framework. The project's goal is to create a framework to find and exploit web application vulnerabilities that is easy to use and extend.

7. Wapiti by Nicolas Surribas

Wapiti allows you to audit the security of your web applications.
It performs "black-box" scans, i.e. it does not study the source code of the application but will scans the webpages of the deployed webapp, looking for scripts and forms where it can inject data.
Once it gets this list, Wapiti acts like a fuzzer, injecting payloads to see if a script is vulnerable.
