    Very Confusing site.  Hard to tell where to enter for a scan (Actually, you just pick one of the scans like: SQL Injection).  When you fill in the parameters for the first scan - it just sends you an email to verify your email address.  You have to repeat the scan a second time to get the emailed results - which are unintelligible.  MUO we need better instuctions to use this site.
