  abstract  = {The benchmarking of tools for dynamic analysis of
vulnerabilities in web applications is something that is done
periodically, because these tools from time to time update their
knowledge base and search algorithms, in order to improve their
accuracy. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these evaluations are
made by software enthusiasts who publish their results on blogs
or on non-academic websites and always with the same evaluation
methodology. Similarly, academics who have carried out this type of
analysis from a scientific approach, the majority, make their analysis
within the same methodology as well the empirical authors. This
paper is based on the interest of finding answers to questions that
many users of this type of tools have been asking over the years,
such as, to know if the tool truly test and evaluate every vulnerability
that it ensures do, or if the tool, really, deliver a real report of all the
vulnerabilities tested and exploited. This kind of questions have also
motivated previous work but without real answers. The aim of this
paper is to show results that truly answer, at least on the tested tools,
all those unanswered questions. All the results have been obtained
by changing the common model of benchmarking used for all those
previous works.},
