WATOBO Web Application Toolbox

Today I was looking on good open source web application Assessment tools & came across this tool WATOBO,this is a graphical interface which runs on ruby, very impressive with less false positives which works in windows only.

The most important advantages are:

* WATOBO has Session Management capabilities! You can define login scripts as well as logout signatures. So you don’t have to login manually each time you get logged out.
* WATOBO can perform vulnerability checks out of the box.
* WATOBO supports Inline De-/Encoding, so you don’t have to copy strings to a transcoder and back again. Just do it inside the request/response window with a simple mouse click.
* WATOBO has smart filter functions, so you can find and navigate to the most interesting parts of the application easily.
* WATOBO is written in (FX)Ruby and enables you to define your own checks
* WATOBO is free software ( licensed under the GNU General Public License Version 2)
