Knowledge Base Report

In Acunetix 360, the Knowledge Base Report provides detailed information about the scan.

The scanner enables you to discover attack surfaces and perform security testing. It lists vulnerabilities and issues, grouped by severity. It also lists additional and useful information about the scan to highlight other potential security issues. These issues are not classified as vulnerabilities but still can help attackers tailor attacks against your web application.

  • You can access that information in Acunetix 360 from the Knowledge Base tab.
  • If you want all that information in a single document, you can generate the Knowledge Base Report in HTML or PDF formats.

Additional information is sorted into groups, such as the number of Comments and Cookies, Crawling Performance and Scan Performance, and Slowest Pages.
