wapiti – web application vulnerability scanner (super quick review/intro)

Today, I finally looked at Wapiti, which is a web application vulnerability scanner. It operates on a black box basis (i.e. it doesn’t see the underlying PHP/ASP/Java source code), and effectively tries to ‘break’ any forms on a page.

Ubuntu Karmic … my first impressions

It was running Debian Lenny, but with the purchase of 2 24″ monitors and my subsequent failure to quickly configure them properly, I decided to jump ship to Karmic (which I knew would work thanks to the Ubuntu LiveCD).
