The efficiency of any Internet site is determined by the speed of reaction to the dynamically developing environment of web technologies. Modern technologies for creating web content in real time have given the professional webmaster the most powerful tools for managing information flows on the Internet. It is quite natural that such a market has not remained without the attention of hackers who seek to cause damage or take possession of confidential information. In such conditions, the urgent task is to minimize the vulnerabilities of web servers and sites in order to avoid information leakage. Vulnerability scanners are software or hardware tools for diagnosing and monitoring network computers, which allows scanning networks, computers and programs to detect possible problems in the security system, assess and eliminate vulnerabilities. Vulnerability scanners allow you to check various applications in the system for the presence of “holes” that can be exploited by attackers.
Low-level tools, such as a port scanner, can also be used to detect and analyze possible applications and protocols running on a system. A method of recognizing, categorizing, and characterizing security holes (called ‘Vulnerabilities’) among network infrastructure, computers, hardware system and software etc. is known as Vulnerability Analysis. Few examples of such vulnerabilities are misconfiguration of network infrastructure components, operating system defect or error, any ambiguity in the commodity product, etc. If vulnerabilities are discovered as part of any vulnerability assessment, then there is a need for vulnerability disclosure. Typically, such disclosures are made by separate groups, such as the Computer Emergency Preparedness Team (CERT) or the organization that discovered the vulnerability.
