This suite of web application security testing tools is named Exploit-Me and its designed to be lightweight and easy to use.

The suite is compromised of XSS-Me allowing Cross-Site Scripting, which is a common flaw found in web applications, SQL Inject-Me used to check for SQL Injection vulnerabilities which would allow malicious users to view, delete and modify records and finally Access-Me which test for access vulnerabilities by trying to access resources without being authenticated.


Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) is a common flaw found in today’s web applications. XSS flaws can cause serious damage to a web application. Detecting XSS vulnerabilities early in the development process will help protect a web application from unnecessary flaws. XSS-Me is the Exploit-Me tool used to test for reflected XSS vulnerabilities.

SQL Inject-Me

SQL Injection vulnerabilities can cause a lot of damage to a web application. A malicious user can possibly view records, delete records, drop tables or gain access to your server. SQL Inject-Me is the Exploit-Me tool used to test for SQL Injection vulnerabilities.


Access vulnerabilities in an application can allow an attacker to access resources without being authenticated. Access-Me is the Exploit-Me tool used to test for Access vulnerabilities.
