Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply. I got so many replies I'm afraid I can't thank everyone personally and I
haven't had the time to go through and do a comparison on the softwares recommended but as promised, please find a
compiled list of what was recommended to me.
Database Scanner by ISS
@stake webproxy --> for manual trys
burp proxy at portswigger.net
Spike by Dave Aitel.
Web hack Control Centre -http://www.ussysadmin.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=64
More people suggested Appscan than any other.
A special thanks goes to Bill Pennington for taking the time to write me a relatively detailed explanation of the
shortfalls of automated scanners, even before he had fully absorbed his coffee.
Again thank to everyone who took the time and when I have decided on which best suits our needs, I will let you know.
