For those interested, acunetix, the developers behind the vulnerability scanning software used to test the joomla core now offer a free edition.  You can find more info here. http://www.acunetix.com

Be careful using Acunetix. It is a great application but I used it with my Lunarpages hosted site and they suspended my account, tried to move it to a dedicated server and blocked my IP address all because the bandwidth taken up by testing the site with Acunetix. It probably says more about Lunarpages than Acunetix. It seems like a great application.

The free version only provides Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) testing.
