hacking ASP session state

Hello all,

I'm doing a test against an IIS 6 box with session state enabled. Sessions are tracked completely server side by a url like such:




So each time you visit the site, it's a new URL, also the session state tends to change during automated scans. Has anyone ran into this problem? Most automated tools break trying to scan or spider (Acunetix, Paros).

Any ideas on approach?

A representative from Acunetix said that version 6.5 does not currently support these features.

Nessus and Paros don't support it well either.

Security through obscurity wins?
