Can you recommend some software that would test my Web site's security?
Most any vulnerability scanning software that can scan your server would be a step in the right direction. Here are some popular tools:
- nMap (http://www.insecure.org/nmap/)
- Nessus (http://www.nessus.org)
- ISS (http://www.iss.net/)
- SAINT (http://www.saintcorporation.com/products/saint_engine.html)
- SARA, (http://www-arc.com/sara/)
You will also want to check script security using a tools such as Nikto.
While there is no guarantee that these tools will find all vulnerabilities, obviously you should fix the ones they do find.
