O2 has a working prototype of an Open Source Static Analysis engine. This
engine, is able to follow taint across multiple methods/classes and for
example, is able to be used (with a little bit of custom script at the top)
to create a trace for HacmeBank that:

   - starts on the HTTP Url,
   - goes into the respective Web.UI.TextBox source
   - passes trough the webservice's invoke call (at web layer)
   - continues at the webservices [WebMethod] (at webservice layer)
   - ends at the SqlCommand method (vulnerable to SQL Injection)

The key concept that powers this engine is what I call the 'MethodStream'
which is a dynamically created file that* "for a starting method X contains
all methods that are recursively called from that method"*

I have not documented the latest GUIs (see
but here are some links to get you started:

   - http://o2platform.com/wiki/O2_.NET_AST_Scanner_-_HacmeBank_Example
executed script file with HacmeBank exploits)
executed script file with HacmeBank API (including the custom
   code extensions required to create the method streams for HacmaBank)

A good place to start is if you give me a couple case studies or problems
you want to see a solution for, I can then send you back a script that shows
how that can be done.
