WPScan is a black box WordPress vulnerability scanner.
OWASP Hackademic Challenges
The Hackademic Challenges implement realistic scenarios with known
vulnerabilities in a safe, controllable environment. Users can attempt to
discover and exploit these vulnerabilities in order to learn important
concepts of information security through the attacker's perspective.
Currently, there are 10 web application security scenarios available.
OWASP OWTF is an OWASP+PTES-focused try to unite great tools and make
testing more efficient.
The OWASP WTE project is an enhancement of the original OWASP Live CD
Project and expands the offering from a static Live CD ISO image to a
collection of sub-projects. Its primary goal is to make application
security tools and documentation easily available and easy to use.
The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy to use integrated penetration
testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications. It is
designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and
as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to
penetration testing. ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of
tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.
is a software vulnerability aggregation and management system that helps
organizations aggregate vulnerability data, generate virtual patches, and
interact with software defect tracking systems.
We are just a little over a month away from AppSec EU and the 2014 Project
Summit. So far we have some great projects signed up to participate, but we
need more projects participating. The Project Summit is a fantastic
opportunity to workshop your project and gather new volunteers for your
project. The Project Summit will be taking place June 23-24 Anglia Ruskin
University in Cambridge, UK and is free and open to the Community. You do
not need a conference pass to attend the Project Summit. Don’t have a
