w3af is a Web Application Attack and Audit Framework. The project’s goal is to create a framework to help you secure your web applications by finding and exploiting all web application vulnerabilities.

Our framework is proudly developed using Python to be easy to use and extend, and licensed under GPLv2.0.






Our project has an interesting history which has defined our long and short term objectives and told us many important lessons. Don’t forget to follow our blog and twitter account for news, releases and feedback.
