Does there exist a free web vulnerability scanner with a GUI and pretty much point and click to check theres nothing glaringly wrong with an app. I appreciate more complex vulns probably require a code review from a development specialist, but id imagine in 2011 theres a tool to identify glaring problems via a point and click type audit

"vulnerability" ??
If it works, do not fix it.
Do you have any apps you suspect?

Yes vulnerability - you know, SQL injection, direct object reference, XSS (cross site scripting) etc.

I wasnt on about performance or app logic bugs, I was on about security bugs.

Can check out this list which include gui friendliness
Indicator on some http://sectools.org/web-scanners.html

but should not only rely on scanner as static code is another critical process as vulnerability may not reveal in real time and surface after certain inputs or sequences is feed to the web app.

Free trial though for 30 days. Heard netsparker is comparable and free if using community version but the latter may differ though did not drill further.
