HTML::XSSLint - audit XSS vulnerability of web pages


  use HTML::XSSLint;

  my $agent   = HTML::XSSLint->new;

  # there may be multiple forms in a single HTML
  # if there's no from, @result is empty
  my @result  = $agent->audit($url);

  for my $result (grep { $_->vulnerable } @result) {
      my $action  = $result->action;
      my @names   = $result->names;
      my $example = $result->example;


HTML::XSSLint is a subclass of LWP::UserAgent to audit Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability by generating random input against HTML forms in a web page.

Note that the way this module works is not robust, so you can't say a web page is XSS free because it passes HTML::XSSLint audit.

This module is a backend for command line utility xsslint bundled in the distribution. See xsslint for details.
