Automatically Detect DOM Cross-Site Scripting with Netsparker
Unlike the traditional cross-site scripting vulnerability, DOM XSS affects the script code in the clients web browser. Since many modern Web 2.0 and HTML 5 web application heavily depend on client-side scripts, most of them are typically susceptible to DOM XSS. As a matter of fact, malicious hackers are taking advantage of this vulnerability, making DOM XSS a popular exploited vulnerability.
The latest version of Netsparker can automatically identify DOM based cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in web applications. Once the vulnerability is detected, Netsparker will report all the technical details developers need to learn about this modern vulnerability and remediate the issue as soon as possible.
Configure URL Rewrite Rules via a Wizard to Attack Parameters in URL
Unlike with other security products, configuring URL rewrite rules in Netsparker is very easy and is done via a user friendly wizard. You do not need to know about regular expressions and specify complicated patterns. You do not even need to know what are the actual URL rewrite rules are written and have access to web server configuration files. Simply follow the user friendly wizard to automatically configure the URL rewrite rules.
Once URL rewrite rules are configured the parameters used in URLs will be automatically crawled and attacked by the web vulnerability scanner to uncover any potential vulnerabilities such parameters might be vulnerable to.
Improved Web Applications Coverage with New Chrome Based Crawler
If a vulnerable parameter is not crawled, it wont be scanned and the vulnerability will not be uncovered. The new version of Netsparker has a new Chrome based crawler that allows it to crawl and better understand client scripts used in modern Web 2.0 and HTML5 web applications, thus leaving no stone unturned.
With the introduction of the new Chrome based crawler Netsparkers coverage has been improved, therefore Netsparker can now crawl a wider variety of web applications and detect vulnerabilities and security issues in them.
