File Extensions Node

Cybercriminals take advantage of every opportunity to attack web platforms and internet users. Normally, file extensions are considered as a safe area. However, attackers can exploit file upload issues and upload a malicious file to websites. This can spread malware or exploit zero-days and other browser-based vulnerabilities.

It is critical to know which file extensions are served from the target application to help mitigate attacks.

Once the scan is completed, all file extensions are listed under the File Extensions 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 File Extensions Node is not listed, it means that Acunetix 360 did not find any.

For further information, see Knowledge Base Nodes.
