Nikto Web Scanner
|Stable release||2.1.5 / December 17, 2012|
Nikto Web Scanner is a Web server scanner that tests Web servers for dangerous files/CGIs, outdated server software and other problems. It performs generic and server type specific checks. It also captures and prints any cookies received.
The Nikto code itself is Open Source (GPL), however the data files it uses to drive the program are not. 
Nikto performs comprehensive tests against web servers for multiple items, including over 6400 potentially dangerous files/CGIs, versions on over 1200 servers, and version specific problems on over 270 servers.
There are some variations of Nikto, one of which is MacNikto. MacNikto is an AppleScript GUI shell script wrapper built in Apple's Xcode and Interface Builder, released under the terms of the GPL. It provides easy access to a subset of the features available in the Open Source, command-line driven Nikto web security scanner, installed along with the MacNikto application.
