Form Validation Errors in the Knowledge Base Viewer

In the latest March 2020 Update for Netsparker Standard 5.7, we introduced a new Form Validation Errors node in the Knowledge Base panel in Netsparker Standard.

Prior to this update, when Netsparker attempted to submit web forms, some were unable to be submitted because of validation errors, which may cause Netsparker to not crawl or attack the responses of these forms.

This new update means that Form Validation Errors that are detected during scans are displayed in the Knowledge Base node, and can be viewed in the Knowledge Base Viewer as illustrated.

For further information, see Knowledge Base Nodes. For further information on other features in this release, see March Update for Netsparker Standard 5.7.
