Sandcat 3.9 takes advantage of UTF8-Decode problems to evade filters - Sandcat update, released today, takes advantage of UTF8-Decode problems to evade filters when performing injection checks. The new technique complements the set of filter evasion techniques implemented in previous Sandcat releases. UTF8-Decode risks have been presented by experts Eduardo Vela and David Lindsay during the BlackHat USA 2009 (See: Our Favorite XSS Filters/IDS and how to Attack Them). Sandcat update also includes additional WAF and IDS evasion techniques, targeting mod_security and PHP-IDS, and improved support for HTML 5.

Sandcat 3.9 Preview Release available for download - We're happy to make available a preview release of Sandcat 3.9. The new version expands the browser emulation feature set by adding new HTTP and SSL/TLS options, Socks support and additional authentication options. The new version can also perform a web structure brute force scan without having to re-crawl the target host (in other words, it remembers the last web structure of scanned web sites). Sandcat 3.9 also comes with a tweaked user interface that can provide a better user experience.
