XSStrike v3.1.3 released: advanced XSS detection and exploitation suite

XSStrike is an advanced XSS detection suite. It has a powerful fuzzing engine and provides zero false positive results using fuzzy matching. XSStrike is the first XSS scanner to generate its own payloads. It is intelligent enough to detect and break out of various contexts.

Why XSStrike?

Every XSS scanner out there has a list of payloads, they inject the payloads and if the payload is reflected into the webpage, it is declared vulnerable but that’s just stupid. XSStrike on the other hand analyses the response with multiple parsers and then crafts payloads that are guaranteed to work. Here are some examples of the payloads generated by XSStrike:




Apart from that, XSStrike has crawled, fuzzing, WAF detection capabilities as well. It also scans for DOM XSS vulnerabilities.
