This question already has an answer here:

We got following URLs in our access logs. No referrer. Chrome user agent. Looks like some security scanner is/was at work. Is it possible to identify it? Many urls have references to netsparker.


Thanks, Sameer

  • I'm not sure how one would identify a scanner from the URL requests .... Is there any reason why you don't think that it is netsparker? – schroeder Nov 29 '15 at 0:14
  • @NeilSmithline I'd vote 'no' on the duplicate. I'm not seeing the connection. – schroeder Nov 29 '15 at 0:19

The scanner used was Netsparker, it self identified in the beginning of your log.


That's the name of the scanner.
