Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner - New Build 20120403We are proud to announce a new build of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner 8. Build 20120403 offers you a new feature which automatically verifies vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting and Directory Traversal, and helps you save loads of time.

Acunetix WVS already presents a very low number of false positive results. This build lowers the false positives even more by automatically specifying vulnerabilities that are definite positive results. Each vulnerability that is confirmed as being positive will be followed by a verifying notification. The verification process is therefore easier and much faster. You can focus on fixing discovered vulnerabilities, rather than spending hours checking all the scanned results manually. The scan reports generated by Acunetix WVS 8 are now even more accurate and effective for your web security.
