Acunetix on-premise installations can be extended with custom vulnerability checks, boosting scan coverage and functionality.
“Acunetix embraces and builds upon well-established design patterns and extends them with DAST-specific features where needed,” he says. “A basic understanding of how Acunetix web vulnerability scans work internally is required.”
Any of the built-in checks may be enabled as well, as Acunetix will automatically prevent them from interfering with each other. Once saved, the newly created scan type can be selected when launching a scan.
Custom scripts can report vulnerabilities and other issues, and the reported item will be treated by Acunetix just like a natively implemented vulnerability alert: it will be displayed within the user interface, and, depending on your configuration, may be submitted to connected issue trackers.
