Category: Releases - Tags: netsparker release , features highlight , authenticated web security scans - Sun, 31 Jan 2016, by Onur Yılmaz

This is a minor update to Netsparker Standard/Professional editions which contains bug fixes and user interface enhancements for form authentication. We have fixed a critical bug where Netsparker was failing to detect logouts when form authentication is configured (especially for the scans that use keyword-based logout detection signature).

We have tried to increase the usability of the Configure Form Authentication wizard in this release. On the status bar of the wizard, we have placed a breadcrumb widget where it shows all the steps of the process and also highlights the current step you are at:


On the first step of the wizard, we have included some mockup images that tries to illustrate the kind of web page URLs we are expecting the user to enter:


Second step of the wizard now contains a familiar user interface idiom on upper-right corner of the window, a camcorder recording animation. The user should now have a better feeling that any operation performed on this step is recorded:


And the third step (a.k.a. the playback phase) of the wizard has enhancements to keyword-based logout detection user interface. We have placed indicators right beneath the browser panes. While you are typing the logout keyword, it is matched to logged-in and logged-out views and the indicators update accordingly. You should make both of these indicators show green, as you know, green means go!

Bugs Fixed
