famous, open source scripting language that is specially designed for
web development. Most of the websites are based on PHP, so the
vulnerability assessment of PHP is one of the important pillar of web
application security. There are so many automatic tools are available
that can scan a web server, database and even applications for

vulnerability hunter uses a combination of static and dynamic
analysis to automatically map the target application. Because it
works by instrumenting application, PHP Vulnerability Hunter can
detect inputs that are not referenced in the forms of the rendered

is where the bugs are uncovered. PHP Vulnerability Hunter iterates
through its different scan plugins and plugin modes, scanning every
file within the targeted application. Each time a page is requested,
dynamic analysis is performed to discover new inputs and bugs.
