Pete,
Anyone interested in working with us to create a tool that will do the SCARE
method for use on web apps, let me know.  I think it would make for an
interesting crawler that gives the attack surface as a result.

First of all, you should question
1) How much coverage is necessary
2) How to appropriately address coverage issues
3) Other scoping issues
My suggestion is to use FireEye: http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/SNS/acts/download/

Also - can I nominate people for your webapp SCARE crawler project?
1st choice: Alexander Sotirov i.e. http://recon.cx/2008/speakers.html#xss
2nd choice: Andrew Petukhov and Dmitry Kozlov i.e.

3rd choice: Matias Madou i.e.
http://www.owasp.org/images/d/d3/AppSecEU08_Dynamic_Taint_Propagation_OWASP.ppt

Another question to add into the mix here (for web applications).  How
do you determine whether you want to do a code review (and to what
degree of automation) or automated black-box scan (and to what degree
of this should be manual)?  Let's say 3 MLOC or 300 websites.  Which
method is faster?  Which tools even scale to meet these requirements?

Cheers,
Andre
