WebApp Vulnerability scanning with VEGA
Vega is a free web vulnerability diagnostic scanner developed by SUBGRAPH. The UI is also one of my favorite scanners because of its superior performance compared to other WVS that is clean and non-commercial. It is written in Java first and operates through the JVM, so it is not affected by the platform. Well, to be more precise, if you have Java, you can run it. This is a great advantage. I personally use Linux only, but I have to work. The environment itself is based on Linux + Windows.
This tool has a good open-source detection rate. That is to say, the rate of mistakes is high, so you have to check the results well.
VEGA can be extended for each scan module. I do not know how many people will be using VEGA’s Jar file, but the interesting thing about this tool is that it uses a web-based UI within the Java base.
If you look at HTML / CSS a bit, you’ll be able to edit it more conveniently.
