FAQ: I’m worried that a live directory or file might be risky to scan in realtime. What can I do?

Acunetix WVS features a directory and file filter which allows you to safely exclude specific URLs or directories from the scan. To create a directory filter:

  1. In the Tools Explorer, click ‘Configuration’ and then click ‘Settings’ in the main panel.
  2. In the Application Settings panel, click ‘Directory and File Filters’.
  3. Use the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to combine URLs and filters for them to be excluded from a scan.

Note: Regular expressions can also be used when specifying a filter.
