This Google's new tool is very easy to setup and will be helpful for all developers.  In particular, this scan web applications for two very common vulnerabilities: cross-site scripting (XSS) and mixed content. 

Cloud Security Scanner addresses the weaknesses of both approaches by using a multi-stage pipeline. First, the scanner makes a high-speed pass, crawling, and parsing the HTML. It then executes a slow and thorough full-page render to find the more complex sections of your site - Google noted.

The developers can access the Cloud Security Scanner under Compute > App Engine > Security in Google's Developers Console. This will run your first scan. It does not work with App Engine Managed VMs, Google Compute Engine, or other resources.
