I just started playing with the Samurai Web Testing Framework which is a collection of open source web app testing 
tools on a linux live cd.  Haven't done much with it yet, but looks promising.  Currently it is a "development" release 
though so there may be bugs.  http://samurai.inguardians.com/

Subject: [SECURITY] Web App Scan tool

I need to test some web apps. I am not fantastic at this. I am looking
for a tool to help and due to a total lack of funds right now I cannot
buy anything. I need to check for the usual things like x site scripting
and sql injection and one of the apps generates a token and passes it on
to another site and I need to make sure that can not be "messed" with too.

any suggestions?
