Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner 7 reviewed by Net

Acunetix WVS build 20110124Acunetix WVS  7.0 is not only helpful, it is extremely powerful. With the new multi-threaded scanner, the entire process far faster and efficient than ever before.  This software offers the best of both worlds; the automatic scanner that executes a quality triage of the target, and handy tools that allow you to manually test all those things that need your particular attention. If I had to single out those tools I found most helpful, I would have to say the Compare Editor and Fuzzer tools, but all in all, Acunetix WVS presents a great compilation that can’t fail to satisfy even the most fastidious penetration tester.

Acunetix has long had the reputation of manufacturing one of the best tools for this kind of job. The company has recently released a new version of their Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (v.7), and has rewritten most of its core components – making it faster and better.

The new features include a new scanning engine that detects a wider range of vulnerabilities, improved web 2.0 application support and session management handling, ability to rescan a specific vulnerability to verify remediation, less false positives and negatives, a lesser chance of breaking down a website while scanning, and more.” – Zeljka Zorz – Net Security.
