With more and more people becoming Internet users there have been great increase in using Web in all areas of life, including communication, education and shopping. And as a result of these changes the security concerns have also grown. The web application vulnerability scanners help reduce these security concerns in Web-based applications. In today's market a large number of web application-scanning tools are available, e.g. QualysGuard WAS, Acunetix, Hailstorm, Appscan, WebInspect, etc. Although these tools are available in the market but question becomes how efficient they are to address security concerns in WEB applications? To compare vulnerability detection rate of different scanners, it is important to have an independent test suite.
