Acunetix v10.5 released

The new version tests for vulnerabilities in popular content management systems Joomla! and Drupal. The proprietary database includes close to 300 Drupal and Joomla! vulnerability checks.


In addition, due to popular demand, Acunetix 10.5 now scores vulnerabilities using CVSS 3.0. CVSS is a very common scoring system, often used for compliance purposes and to prioritize the fixing of vulnerabilities. CVSS 3.0 updates the metrics used to calculate the scores for vulnerabilities, bringing it in line with the security industry’s requirements while giving more realistic scores to web vulnerabilities.  Acunetix WVS v10.5 scores vulnerabilities using both CVSSv2 and the new CVSSv3.
