Scant3R – Web Security Scanner

  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2021

Vulnerability Scanning is the process of finding the security flaws in the web-based application which can compromise the web application and reveal sensitive data. Scanning can be done in a manual way as well as in an automated way. Manual testing takes a lot of time if the scope of the target domain is vast. So automated testing is a good approach to be followed. Scant3rR is an automated tool developed in the python language which tests the target domain for various types of vulnerabilities or flaws like XSS, Injection, LFI, etc. The tool contains various modules which can be used in the scanning process. Scant3R tool is open source and free to use.
