Acunetix build 13.0.200624118 for Windows and Linux has been released.

The new Acunetix build introduces support for GraphQL and OAuth 2.0, allowing Acunetix to scan web applications that make use of these web technologies. It also includes multiple UI updates, a new comprehensive and interactive report, and HTTP response highlighting for better readability. In addition, there are a good number of new vulnerability checks, numerous updates, and fixes, all of which are available for all editions of Acunetix.
