A new version of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanners v10.5 has been released. The new version tests for Joomla! and Drupal vulnerabilities, supports CVSS 3.0 and includes other improvements/bug fixes.

Joomla! and Drupal Support

Acunetix v10.5 now reports vulnerabilities in popular content management systems Joomla! and Drupal. The new proprietary database includes close to 300 Joomla! and Drupal vulnerability checks.

Supports CVSS 3.0

Due to popular demand, Acunetix 10.5 now scores vulnerabilities using CVSS 3.0. CVSS is a very common scoring system, often used for compliance purposes and to prioritize the fixing of vulnerabilities. CVSS 3.0 updates the metrics used to calculate the scores for vulnerabilities, bringing it in line with the security industry’s requirements while giving more realistic scores to web vulnerabilities. Acunetix WVS v10.5 scores vulnerabilities using both CVSSv2 and the new CVSSv3.

How to Update

Since this is a new version, you will need to download and install Acunetix WVS v10.5 manually. Use the download link that you received when you purchased Acunetix WVS and follow the upgrade instructions available in the article “Upgrading from a previous version of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner”.
