Sandcat v4.0 released

Sandcat allows web administrators to perform aggressive and comprehensive scans of an organization’s web server to isolate vulnerabilities and identify security holes. The Sandcat scanner requires basic inputs such as host names, start URLs and port numbers to scan a complete web site and test all the web applications for security vulnerabilities.

Version 4.0

  • Fast and ultra fast scans - Sandcat 4 provides significantly faster scans (500+ requests /sec when running a common web server scan).
  • Faster JavaScript execution.
  • Browser emulation expanded to five modes: Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera and Safari. When changing the emulation mode you are changing more than the user agent. We are researching differences between the browsers and replicating them.
  • Greatly improved support for large web sites
  • CatSense, a new feature that scans and displays in a new way relevant information about each page.
  • Improved overall stability when running in both multithreaded and non-multithreaded mode and when scanning JavaScript-enabled sites.
  • Lower CPU usage when scanning hosts.
  • SandcatCS, a console version of Sandcat 4.0. Allows to control the new features and scan methods.
