Web Application Scans

Web scanners are used to find vulnerabilities in websites to protect them from being hacked. A web application vulnerability scanner (WAVS) is used to scan websites. Are these scans white, black, or gray box scanning? What are the two types of WAVS? Once viewed, you should have a general idea of how WAVS scan for vulnerabilities. Pay attention to the description of cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross site request forgery (CSRF) attacks.
