View the HTTP Request and Response of a Vulnerability
An HTTP request includes information that is sent by a client to the website over hypertext transfer protocol when you click a link, submit a button or expand a sidebar, for example. This information mostly contains the request method, the host address of the target site, the path or the page you requested, and some headers. The server responds to HTTP requests with an HTTP response. The HTTP request and response is reported in Acunetix 360. This is important, since it allows you to confirm the existence of the vulnerability and provides information on how to manually replicate it.
