i have to scan a fairly old web application so we can patch some security hole in it. The problem is that the application use frames.

One frame is a navigation menu and another is used to show pages content. for some reason (probably because of this frame system) arachni seems to be unable to crawl through the website.

I managed to scan a part of the application by feeding arachni a list of direct url so he could access them outside of the framed environnement, but it's impossible to access some page like this, preventing me from scanning a good 60% of the application.

any suggestion about how i could help arachni on this web application?

    Any chance I can be given access to the webapp? I can't know what's going on without running some tests.

    It's an intranet apps so it will probably be impossible sadly.

    I will try to ask but probably won't have an answer before friday, and i don't really have huge hope for a yes.

    will keep you updated on this.
