ImmuniWeb® Self-Fuzzer Firefox ExtensionTuesday, September 10, 2013
Author: Xavier Roussel, Security Auditor at High-Tech Bridge
ImmuniWeb® Self-Fuzzer is a simple Firefox browser extension designed to detect Cross-Site Scripting and SQL Injection vulnerabilities in web applications.
ImmuniWeb® Self-Fuzzer is not a web application security scanner or crawler, but a real-time web fuzzer. Once being activated by user in his browser, it carefully follows user’s HTTP requests and fuzzes them in real time, carefully checking all HTTP parameters passed within the requests. Results of fuzzing are also displayed in real-time, notifying user immediately upon vulnerability detection.
It demonstrates how rapidly and easily these two most common types of web vulnerabilities can be found even by a person who is not familiar with web security. It is a sort of decision-making tool or Proof-of-Concept for SMBs and private persons who hesitate whether to order ImmuniWeb® Security Assessment or not.
