Web application scanning specialist Acunetix has launched interactive application security testing (IAST) updates for vulnerability and misconfiguration detection as well as improved scan coverage for customers.

According to Nicholas Sciberras, blogging for parent company Invicti Security, the latest Acunetix Premium update for Windows, Linux and macOs introduces multiple IAST updates that will help detect several severe vulnerabilities.

“Acunetix has been updated to detect the following vulnerabilities using IAST: LDAP, XPath, MongoDB, email header and server-side template injections; unsafe reflection and deserialisation of untrusted data, and server-side request forgery,” he writes.

The IAST updates will also provide full coverage for the newly supported web frameworks and improve the detection of server-side misconfigurations.

“Acunetix IAST (AcuSensor) has been updated to detect over 30 new server-side misconfigurations across all sensors,” he writes.

The vendor has also introduced new vulnerability checks for various web applications from the likes of SolarWinds, Apache, Citrix, VMware, SonicWall, WordPress, MobileIron, Ubiquiti, and ManageEngine, and token handling updates amid assorted other updates and fixes, according to Sciberras.

Acunetix will start reporting if an old version of the IAST sensor (AcuSensor) is installed on the web application,” he added.

Specific fixes include GitLab, Amazon AWS, scanner crashes, timeout issues and more. Read the full details on the Acunetix update page.
