Next to web application security, Moth is also a test tool for static code analysis. The accompanying software includes unsecured versions of the Wordpress blog and the Redmine project management application.

The web applications and vulnerability scripts are available directly or through mod_security. Applications written in PHP are accessible through the PHP-IDS intrusion detection system. This makes it easy to log scanner tests and other attack methods automatically.

The Moth VMware image is ready for download from the SourceForge site as a 7-zip archive and is licensed under GPL.
