Don't write your own web application security scanner

Posted on 23 August 2014 in misc

Just want to promote the lattest post in w3af blog "Don't write your own web application security scanner" by Andres Riancho. Over six years ago I posted a message to w3af-develop mailing list

Hello, everybody!

I'm author of Xcobra - Web Application Vulnerability Scanner (http://code.google.com/p/xcobra/). Some time ago I knew about w3af project and decided that it will be better to help in developing of more full-blown project instead of inventing bicycle.

And I still think that in most cases it is much better to contribute to exising project like w3af than write your own yeat another web application scanner.
