    Hi,

    Everything is in the title : how can i test the security of a forum please ? Is there sites or programs (for a basic/medium user :D )
    We don't know how to proceed to be sure that "standard" attacks could be prevented.
    I've tried an old firefox's plugin who test sql injection and xss : i've got 404 error so i don't know what to do for a better protection.

    Many thanks.

    Excuse me but i want to test my website against hackers, not to view the rate. The tools you provide me can analyse the website or just give me the reputation ?

    Already tested, thanks :)

    I've found some blogs talking about security and how to protect, so i'm working on. And i hope it would be enough.
