    Default Paros Proxy

    Great program for testing sites security.

    To get it working run ./ and configure the browser you are using so the proxy uses 127.0.01: 8080 for http and https.

    We wrote a program called "Paros" for people who need to evaluate the security of their web applications. It is free of charge and completely written in Java.
