The Latest Acunetix WVS Build
Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner version 8 has just released its latest version. Build 20130205 provides a better evaluation experience by reporting all the vulnerabilities that are present in your web application. The new build also includes other product improvements and bug fixes.
The latest build includes an improved update mechanism. Future updates can only be downloaded automatically through this build.
New 14 day Evaluation version will replace the Free Edition. Evaluating users can now perform full scans of the Acunetix test websites and of their websites. The Evaluation version has the following limitations:
– The vulnerability details are only shown when scanning Acunetix test websites
– Results cannot be saved
– Reports are disabled
– Scheduled scans are disabled
Changed prioritisation of TLS protocol over SSLv3. This provides better support for IIS 7.5 web servers, which previously refused connections from Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner.
– Fixed crash that occurs when the Scan Wizard is used while the Login Sequence Recorder is running
– Fixed crash in Session Manager
How to Upgrade
When you start Acunetix WVS 8, a pop-up window will automatically notify you that a new build is available to download. Navigate to the General > Program Updates node in the Tools explorer, click on Download and Install the new build.
