Web Inspect crash

I made a site recently which needed to be security scanned by an external company using Web Inspect.

It failed... multiple times!

Actually the security guy said that Web Inspect was crashing. I had no idea why it was happening. Eventually I sat on the phone with the security guy and I started removing things from my master page.

It turns out that there was some combination of Javascript libraries that was causing Web Inspect to crash.

If you ever need to be security scanned and it crashes for an unknown reason, start stripping out js libraries.
