We stay current with a little help from our friends. Heyhack participates actively in open-source communities of web security researchers and leverages the CWE to make sure Heyhack is always up-to-date with actual security threats.
The Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) is a community-developed list of software and hardware weakness types. It serves as a common language, a measuring stick for security tools, and as a baseline for weakness identification, mitigation, and prevention efforts.
Heyhack continuously monitors the CWE Software Development list and implements test cases as soon as new weaknesses are discovered. This way, you can rest assured that we will always scan and test for current risks in modern web application development.
