BurpSuite (Repeater or Intruder) can do exactly what you are asking.

You can provide your own "Fuzz List" to the Burp Intruder to have it test for various vulnerabilities, such as XSS and SQLi.
The only SQLi specific tool I have found that is worth actually using is SPI Dynamics SQL Injector, but I believe it's only available in the toolkit purchased with WebInspect.

It is possible to write BeanShell scripts for WebScarab to perform what you're looking for, maybe you could look in that direction?

I've been researching a simple task:

record all raw user requests to the server with post data and headers.
Then repeat them, perhaps modifying some parameters like session id.
It could be useful to test if some actions which were recorded under

privileged account is available under unprivileged account.

Tools like Selenium or other browser oriented staff which logs clicks
to buttons are unusable, because in unprivileged interface this
buttons could not exists, however direct post to url can work.

I've checked WebScarab, BurpSuite, Paros, w3af (spiderMan plugin)
and did not found any resoanble solution. Whith first three of them
I've been able to manually repeat a request, however for site with

hundreds links is is time consuming.

The only way to how automate this process, was exporting messages from
Paros. Then some scripting to get requests, modify session id, repeat
them again to server and scan by eyes though answers. It was several

times faster
than manual requests from graphical interface of these tools.

 Is it possible to do this simple task with some tool to  minimize
scripting and not invent a wheel.
 Is there a good command line XSS,SQLi checker which can read raw

requests with marked parameters to fuzz (like in burp suite), fuzz the
url, analyze responces to find problems.

w3af seems a good tool, however I've not run deep inside it yet. If it
can do all mentioned above stuff, point me please to right plugins.

Sure that there should be a discover plugin which can just read raw
request, but I have not found it!

Thanks all.

Best regards.
