Abstract: Vulnerabilities are the loopholes that arise due to poor programming or mis-configuration. Web Applications are considered to be very vulnerable to attack as compared to desktop programs on sole computers. Keeping this thing in our minds we decided to find out the all possible vulnerabilities in Saudi Arabian organization's web servers. To assess these vulnerabilities we selected number of open source tools and tested about 169 most popular web servers of government, Financial, Academic, organizations and commercial organizations. This problem seemed to us interesting because of two reasons, first security is a burning issue of the world and it can be minimized by finding out the vulnerabilities. Secondly is in the interest of Saudi Arabian national goals. This problem was not addressed before for Saudi Arabian Organizations web servers so that's why it carries high importance.
