CAT.NET is a snap-in to the Visual Studio IDE that helps you identify security flaws within a managed code (C#, Visual Basic .NET, J#) application you are developing. It does so by scanning the binary and/or assembly of the application, and tracing the data flow among its statements, methods, and assemblies. This includes indirect data types such as property assignments and instance tainting operations. The engine works by reading the target assembly and all reference assemblies used in the application -- module-by-module -- and then analyzing all of the methods contained within each. It finally displays the issues its finds in a list that you can use to jump directly to the places in your application's source code where those issues were found. The following rules are currently support by this version of the tool. - Cross Site Scripting - SQL Injection - Process Command Injection - File Canonicalization - Exception Information - LDAP Injection - XPATH Injection - Redirection to User Controlled Site [GD: Emphasis added.

Also available on Visual Studio Gallery - CAT.NET

“CAT.NET is a static analysis tool to analyze software security issues. It uses a tainted variable algorithm based on work from Microsoft research. It is free to download and is being actively developed by the Information Security Tools team.  http://blogs.msdn.com/securitytools [GD: Description Leached in Full]
