Duplicates, duplicates, and duplicate rates
Jeremiah Grossman writes: "Following Larry Sutoís analysis of NTOSpider, IBMís AppScan, and HPís WebInspect, where he compared code coverage to links crawled and vulnerabilities found, some questioned the accuracy of his results. Personally I didnít get the criticism because with only two published reviews this year, we should be grateful to see data of any kind related to web application vulnerability scanners. I chalked the comments up as the standard scanner vendor or product reseller defense mechanism. Besides, Larry Suto is a professional source code reviewer and if he canít figure it out, what chance does anyone else have? Well, expect for the vendor themselves, and this is where it gets interesting."
