    What kind of security scanning are you looking for? Are you referring to scanning an existing website for any possible vulnerabilities or something like that?

    Since you are likely using ASP.NET, consider checking out the Web Developer Checklist (which is great for all types of methods of improving your site and application) but in particular the Security section.

    Under there you will find several links and topics such as the following that will help you make your site more secure and help avoid some of the issues that you are mentioning : 

    • Basic Security Best Practices for ASP.NET Applications - contains a fairly large list of many of the different areas that you should consider regarding Security in ASP.NET Applications .
    • ASafaWeb ASP.NET Security Analyzer - This tool will automatically analyze and notify you of any major security flaws that may exist within your site online.
    • Microsoft Code Analysis Tool - You can run this tool to help analyze your code and determine areas that may be at risk for things like Cross-Site Scripting Attacks (XSS), SQL Injection and XPath Injections.
    • Many other tools specifically for helping prevent XSS attacks, SSL Information and Analysis and a few other areas.

    For some additional information on Web Security in general, you may want to check out the Open Web Applications Security Project(OWASP) which is a great resource that contains basically everything you would want to know with regards to security.
