Email Addresses Node
Malicious hackers can engineer phishing or spear-phishing attacks by sending emails that contain fake information and links. Also we all receive many unwanted emails for commercial or other irrelevant reasons if our email addresses are published or shared without our permission.
Having clear text email addresses on a website is not in itself a vulnerability. But it is good to know what email addresses are published on the website. It prompts you to take further precautions to protect your data.
During the scan, Acunetix 360 detects email addresses accessible from the scanned web application and lists them in the Email Addresses node in the Knowledge Base.
Once the scan is completed, all email addresses exposed in the website are listed under the Email Addresses node in the Knowledge Base. You can access the same information in the Knowledge Base Report and Knowledge Base Tab.
Acunetix 360 forms Knowledge Base nodes on its findings. If the Email Addresses node is not listed, it means that Acunetix 360 did not find any.
For further information, see Knowledge Base Nodes.
