Security Compass is proud to announce the release of AccessMe, the latest addition to our ExploitMe series of free penetration testing add-ons for Mozilla Firefox.

This preliminary release of AccessMe expands the series with powerful functionality for testing the access control and session management mechanisms of web applications, including:

  • Invalid HTTP method attacks
  • Bypassing access control using HTTP HEAD
  • Session dropping

We're releasing this tool as open-source under the GPLv3, and hope they will assist penetration testers, QA staff, and developers detect and eliminate common security vulnerabilities in today's web applications.

Please visit http://www.securitycompass.com/ to download AccessMe, and all of our other free penetration testing tools.
