MySQL gets security scanner

Friday, 20 June 2003, 1:39 AM EST

Application Security Inc. is rolling out a security scanner for MySQL, the open-source database from MySQL AB, and for Web applications.

AppDetective 3.2 for Web Applications and AppDetective 3.2 for MySQL are network-based vulnerability assessment scanners that locate and assess the security of network database applications.

Both Web applications and back-end databases can provide an easy way for intruders to exploit application vulnerabilities. To combat that potential, AppDetective can now check Web applications for susceptibility to XSS (Cross Site Scripting), SQL Injection and Parameter Manipulation attacks, among other holes.

For MySQL databases, the update brings a new set of security checks for Denial of Service, Password Strength, Application Integrity and Access Control configurations.

AppDetective supports Oracle Corp. databases, Microsoft Corp.'s SQL Server, IBM's DB2 UDB (Universal Database), Sybase Inc.'s databases, and Lotus Domino Mail and Web Server applications.
