IMHO you should check this things which is suitable for most of
 - if web-server by it self has vulnerabilities, the quickest way is to scan
it with nikto and nessus
 - check if it possible to make actions without authorization, the quickest
way is to record admin actions with Paros and replay it with session id of
ordinary user or just without session id.
 - check csrf in a similar way
 - check the inputs for SQL injection (" and '), XSS (",',<,>)

Hello list,

 Our product's management is done via WEB application.
 The first page of the WEB application is a login page.

 I am wondering what basic security tests (pen tests?) I need to do 
and what tools should I use.

 I will appreciate your help with it.


Best regards.
Gleb Pakharenko.
