Secret Weapon Labs has released iCanary 1.0, a new tool designed to help FileMaker Pro database and solution developers to improve the security of their databases.
iCanary performs tests on remote and locally hosted FileMaker databases, displaying potential security flaws that can lead to problems. In its current incarnation, iCanary mines into FileMaker databases and determines what the state of the environment is and what sort of data is available — like fields, layouts and calculations.
iCanary was developed using REALbasic from REAL Software Inc. The software works with Mac OS X and Mac OS 8.6 – 9.2. A demo is available for download from the Secret Weapons Labs Web site.
