Hi, for one of my websites, I have been required to use a web application
scanner that tests against the OWASP Top Ten threats. I'm looking for a
scanner that does this that is inexpensive or free.

Possible scanners I've found for this include the OWASP Zed Attach Proxy
Project, Sonar, and w3af, but none of these explicitly tests against the
OWASP Top Ten threats (at least not that I can tell).

Does anyone know of a scanner that does test against the OWASP Top Ten
threats? Thank you!

w3af has an OWASP TOP 10 scanning profile but I can't tell how good it is.
