Rapid Scan Tool to Identifies vulnerabilities in web applications


RapidScan is a python based scanning tool used for analyzing vulnerabilities in web applications. The tool is equipped with scanning utilities, such as Nmap, Golismero, Nikto, Uniscan, and Dnsrecon.

The tool runs these utilities to find vulnerabilities in web applications. Some well-known checks performed by the tool include XSS, SQLi, DNS zone transfer, Local File Inclusing (LFI), Remote File Inclusion (RFI), Open directory vulnerabilities, open ports, and SSL related vulnerabilities. The tool not only finds out the vulnerabilities but also classifies them into low, medium, high, and critical categories according to the risk definition.
