An updated build of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner Version 7 was released.  This new build, numbered 20111005, includes two new features (support for a wider variety of web applications), a good number of improvements to the PHP AcuSensor technology, and also a minor bug fix.

New features

  • The Client Script Analyzer engine now supports jquery + jquery UI + YUI library
  • New URL Rewrite option; Match full URI. If this option is enabled, a URL rewrite rule can be matched against the whole URI and not just path


Bug fix

  • Fixed: Login Sequence Recorder not using Proxy settings specified in WVS settings
