Platform: Windows (or UNIX via WINE)
Created and released on Oct 13, 2000. Concept by David Rhoades of Maven Security.
The first publicly released general-purpose web application security assessment tool. Achilles acted as a HTTP/HTTPS proxy that allowed a user to intercept, log, and modify web traffic on the fly. Achilles has been obsolete for many years now. We recommend using Burp Suite or OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (a.k.a. ZAP).
