Acunetix checks for all web vulnerabilities including SQL injection, Cross site scripting and others. SQL injection is a hacking technique which modifies SQL commands in order to gain access to data in the database. Cross site scripting attacks allow a hacker to execute a malicious script on your visitor’s browser.
Detection of these vulnerabilities requires a sophisticated detection engine. Paramount to web vulnerability scanning is not the number of attacks that a scanner can detect, but the complexity and thoroughness with the scanner launches SQL injection, Cross Site scripting and other attacks. Acunetix has a state of the art vulnerability detection engine which quickly finds vulnerabilities with a low number of false positives. It also locates CRLF injection, Code execution, Directory Traversal, File inclusion, checks for vulnerabilities in File Upload forms and much more.
