Hacme Bank

Just to let you know in the next hour or so the links should go live to our
new free tool, Hacme Bank on the Foundstone web site

You can see the press release here;


It's an online banking application written in C# ASP.NET (requires IIS and
.NET framework 1.1 to install) with a set of security holes replicating real
world things we have found in client engagements over the last 9 months. It
serves as a "real world" training application for web application pen
testing and education for developers.  

Its free for non-commercial use and we are already working on the next
version to include some more user management issues. 

All of the lessons are screen captured and documented so you can step
through all of the issues. These are in a "User and Solution Guide" PDF in
the web root by default. 

It is not designed to be a good benchmarking platform for automated tools
but it is interesting to compare the results of your favorite tools with the
holes in the bank (we have done this) or put it behind a "web app firewall"
(no uptake from my recent challenge I am afraid, go figure!). 

The experienced can start attacking the login field when installed and the
less experienced can walk through the lesson plans.
