IV. SOLUTION

Upgrade to eFront version 3.6.3 build 7455

VI. VUPEN Web Application Security Scanner (WASS)

VUPEN Web Application Security Scanner (WASS) is a SaaS security scanning technology which enables corporations and organizations to identify, track and remediate security vulnerabilities affecting their web sites and web applications, prevent criminals from gaining unauthorized access to sensitive data, and comply with security requirements such as PCI.

VUPEN WASS is based on a proprietary technology developed by VUPEN security experts, and combines black-box (smart and automated) and grey-box (signature-based) scanning to accurately identify web vulnerabilities such as those in the OWASP Top 10 including SQL injection and cross-site scripting, but also real-world vulnerabilities such as shell command injection and file inclusion.
