A new Acunetix update has been released for Windows, Linux, and macOS: 14.2.210503151.

This Acunetix update introduces Docker support, a new Scan Statistics page that is shown for each scan, and the ability to send vulnerability information to the AWS WAF. Customers sending vulnerabilities to their issue tracker can now manage such vulnerabilities better because the Acunetix UI will start showing the issue tracker ID. In addition, issue trackers can now be restricted to specific target groups allowing specific users the ability to send vulnerability information to specific issue trackers. This update includes a number of important vulnerability checks for well-known applications, as well as numerous updates and fixes, all of which are available for all editions of Acunetix.
