Re: Vulnerability/Penetration Testing Tools

Madison,
See, thats the challenge. I am not looking for a tool that does strict vulnerability assessments. I am looking for a tool that will do an automated vulnerability assessment and then automated attacks against those vulnerabilities. Core Impact has such a tool and it is well worth the money. In fact, I already have that in my to-purchase list. I am now searching for free tools however and haven't found anything.

My goal is to identify tools that have a high ROI... free == the higest. Never the less, automation can only be used a limited amount as it reduces quality and accuracy.... I know this.

 I've looked at BidiBLAH (enfaces on the BLAH).  Their product does
nothing more than take the results from
Nessus, Metasploit and such, then cram them all together in a easy to
understand format for your boss.
BidiBLAH IMHO is not a vulnerability assessment tool, rather a reporting
tool.  If anyone can correct me
please do, since at one point I was in contact with BidiBLAH sales
asking what I got for $10,000.00 outside
Of the reporting?  Their answer, well let's just say I'm still waiting.

My two cent, Nessus.  It's cheap, effective, and probably the most
supported network vulnerability assessment
tool on the market.

Er, woops, misread - you want to scan and automatically exploit
systems.
This can be easily done with a little scripting and the available
open-source tools. SensePost
has a project called BiDiBLAH that integrates Google-discovery, a TCP
port scanner, Nessus,
and Metasploit: - http://www.sensepost.com/research/bidiblah/

The next version of the Metasploit Framework (v3) has support for
'recon'
modules that technically you could use to automate this, but it will
take some time before this is usable.
