Acunetix releases IAST support for WebSphere and improves crawling of SPAs

A new Acunetix Premium update has been released for Windows, Linux, and macOS: 14.9.220713150

This Acunetix release introduces IAST support for WebSphere enabling the use of the Java IAST sensor (AcuSensor) with this Java server. In addition, Acunetix DeepScan has been updated to better scan single-page applications (SPAs), allowing for better identification of the APIs used by the web application. The Acunetix UI received additional updates, including the feature to copy the HTTP request used to identify a vulnerability to a cURL command. This Acunetix update also includes a number of new vulnerability checks, updates, improvements, and product fixes.

New features

  • Java IAST AcuSensor can now be used on WebSphere
  • HTTP requests can be copied as cURL commands from the vulnerability data

New vulnerability checks

Updates

  • Multiple DeepScan updates that improve crawling of single-page applications (SPAs)
  • Upgraded Chromium to v103.0.5060.114
  • Improved handling of installed.json by the PHP IAST AcuSensor
  • SCA, AcuMonitor (OOB vulnerability checks), and URL malware checks now require Acunetix Online Services to be enabled in the user profile
  • Updated the MongoDB injection checks
  • Various UI updates and fixes

Fixes

  • Multiple fixes in the Java and .NET IAST AcuSensors
  • Fixed a false negative in the Possible virtual host found check
  • Fixed a bug causing CSRF tokens to be retrieved using HTTP
  • Fixed a false positive in the Apache HTTP server source code disclosure check
