w3af Web Application Attack and Audit Framework 1.1

w3af, is a Web Application Attack and Audit Framework. The w3af core and it's plugins are fully written in python. The project has more than 130 plugins, which check for SQL injection, cross site scripting (xss), local and remote file inclusion and much more.
Changes: Increased performance using gzip encoding, hundreds of bugs fixed, enhanced embedded bug report system added and more.


There are four different ways of getting your hands w3af:

- Download one of the release packages, which include files for Windows and Linux.

- Get the latest (and unstable) version from the development SVN using this command:

      svn co w3af

- Download the Samurai Live CD, which has w3af preinstalled with all the dependencies but at this point the LiveCD does not include 1.0-rc3.

- Or run "apt-get install w3af" in your Debian system and get 1.0-rc2
