We are currently looking for some tool to help us find weaknesses in our code. There is not lots of options currently on the market. A tool we are looking on is http://www.fortify.com and http://www.armorize.com/, but who does best work on code? Biggest advantage for Fortify is that it supports many different languages, but damn it is really expensive tools.
Microsoft is planning to release their Security Tools but i think they are currently on early stage.
- CAT.NET – the managed code security source code scanning tool
- WACA – Web Application Configuration Analyzer
- WPL – Web Protection Library (formerly Anti-XSS)
- TAM – Threat Modeling and Analysis tool
- Only tool i tried to so far is CAT.NET but something is going terribly wrong when i run test on code (see error below), but i think this is a great initiative from Microsoft. What is wrong with my pdb, think is have wrong paths set or something…
Error from my run CAT.NET

- Seems like it is a Windows 7 problem.
