YAWAST 0.5 Released

Today, I’ve released the latest version of YAWAST, a security scanner for web applications that provides basic information about the application, and performs common checks so that you can move on to the fun part of testing more quickly. YAWAST also remains the only tool I’ve found that can perform an accurate test for SWEET32.
