Acunetix Version 13 build 13.0.200508159 for Windows and Linux has been released.

This new build introduces the Business Logic Recorder, which allows the user to record logic implemented in multi-step web forms. The Acunetix scanner will go through the multi-step form and will be able to attack each step in the form. In addition, vulnerabilities can now be sent to Citrix WAF for virtual patching or the Azure DevOps Services issue tracker for further follow-up by the team. Most vulnerabilities have been updated to include a CVSS 3.1 score. This update adds a good number of important vulnerability checks and includes various updates and fixes, which are available for all editions of Acunetix.

Here is the full set of updates:
