- Emailing PDF report is now optional. Therefore, you can just view it in your scan history if you wish instead of having it emailed to you.
- Crawling a URL at the start of the scan is now optional. Therefore, you can now test a single webpage for the various vulnerabilties instead of scanning an entire website.
- Issues fixed that some users were having when running WebVulScan on Linux (static path references and case sensitivity). Now tested on Windows (XAMPP 1.7.4 running on Vista) and Linux (XAMPP 1.7.4 running on Ubuntu 12.04).
- Added information about Linux permissions to instructions.
- Instructions now in .docx and .txt format
WebVulScanis a web application vulnerability scanner. It is a web application itself written in PHP and can be used to test remote, or local, web applications for security vulnerabilities. As a scan is running, details of the scan are dynamically updated to the user. These details include the status of the scan, the number of URLs found on the web application, the number of vulnerabilities found and details of the vulnerabilities found.
After a scan is complete, a detailed PDF report is emailed to the user. The report includes descriptions of the vulnerabilities found, recommendations and details of where and how each vulnerability was exploited
The vulnerabilities tested by WebVulScan are:
- Reflected Cross-Site Scripting
- Stored Cross-Site Scripting

- Scan History: Allows a user to view or download PDF reports of previous scans that they performed.
- Register: Allows a user to register with the web application.
- Login: Allows a user to login to the web application.
- Options: Allows a user to select which vulnerabilities they wish to test for (all are enabled by default).
- PDF Generation: Dynamically generates a detailed PDF report.
