Why do I need to upload a verification file before scanning my website for vulnerabilities?

Scan Target Verification allows you to confirm ownership of the website you want to scan using Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner (Online). This is done by downloading a unique verification file from the settings of the Scan Target configured in Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner (Online) and uploading this verification file to the root of the web site. From the settings of your Scan Target, click “Verify Scan Target” to initiate the verification process.


Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner (Online) will check that the verification file is present in the root of the web site before each web scan.
