RIPS: Free PHP security scanner
Posted on 03 July 2012.
RIPS finds vulnerabilities in PHP applications using static code analysis. By tokenizing and parsing all source code files RIPS is able to transform PHP source code into a program model and to detect sensitive sinks (potentially vulnerable functions) that can be tainted by user input (influenced by a malicious user) during the program flow.


Besides the structured output of found vulnerabilities RIPS also offers an integrated code audit framework for further manual analysis.

Code audit interface:
  • scan and vulnerability statistics
  • grouped vulnerable code lines (bottom up or top down)
  • vulnerability description with example code, PoC, patch
  • exploit creator
  • file list and graph (connected by includes)
  • function list and graph (connected by calls)
  • userinput list (application parameters)
  • source code viewer with highlighting
  • active jumping between function calls
  • search through code by regular expression
  • 8 syntax highlighting designs.
