Fw: Ajax Vulnerability Scanner

I'm getting crazy to find a vulnerability scanner that evaluates the 
security of a website done with Ajax. I need it to have a API or a 
console mode so I would be able to integrate it into a cron.

Any ideas?

Only ideas

Why do you want to cron it? I would run the tests whenever there is a new test or a change to the application.

Divide and conquer. You have something like a rich client and a API, right?

First the api: make your tests with your favorite language/technology (I like wget/curl with some grep magic and 
shunit), first the positive cases then the negative ones: try to trespass the workflow of calls, bypass the 
authentication and authorization scheme, inject html, javascript or sql, overflows

For the "rich client" perhaps you will have to repeat, reuse or extend some tests, like the xss.

Use the owasp top ten for both.

I know that I am not answering your question, but hope it help you
