Great and getting even better” is what we commit to with each monthly update we roll out on

So here are 6 fresh updates we deployed to make your security testing flow a lot easier, more flexible, and more efficient:

  2. Exploit 3 critical CVEs with Sniper Automatic Exploiterin <2 minutes

  3. Control the requests/seconds limit in the Website Scanner

  4. Automatically validated Website Scanner findings get a Confirmed tag

  5. Clone pentest robots on

  6. Manually reset your API key

Let’s dive into specifics!

1. Detect 4 widespread CVEs with the Network Scanner

Our vulnerability research team worked around the clock to embed new detection modules for the latest high-impact vulnerabilities.

Run our Network Vulnerability Scanner against your targets and check for:

  • the critical VMware RCE vulnerability in the vCenter server – CVE-2021-21985

  • entry points for the Microsoft Exchange Server RCE (ProxyOracle) – CVE-2021-31195

  • the SSRF vulnerability in VMware’s vRealize Operations Manager API  – CVE-2021-21975

  • unauthenticated events in the Modern Events Calendar Lite WordPress plugin – CVE-2021-24146

Use the Full Scan option from the Network Vulnerability Scanner with OpenVAS and get a ready-to-use report with detailed findings.

2. Automatically exploit & confirm 3 critical CVEs with Sniper

If you haven’t tried it yet, take this chance to see how Sniper Automatic Exploiter validates, exploits, and does post-exploitation in under 2 minutes for the most recent critical vulns.

Automatically run a full exploitation sequence on your targets and get validation for:

  • the RCE vulnerability in VMware’s vCenter servers – CVE-2021-21972 

  • the OGNL injection RCE in Atlassian’s Confluence servers – CVE-2021-26084

  • the unauthenticated OMIGOD RCE vulnerability in multiple Azure Linux machines CVE-2021-38647, among a dozen other widespread security flaws.

3. Limit the number of requests/second with the Website Scanner

You now have the option to control the maximum number of requests per second you make with the Website Scanner.

Go to Website Vulnerability Scanner, add your URL target, select Engine options, and choose Limits. From there, you can set a maximum of 10.000 requests/second.

Here’s what it looks like:


4. Automatically validated Website Scanner findings get a Confirmed tag

When you scan your targets with our proprietary Website Scannerthe discovered findings are automatically validated and get a specific tag.    

Each finding is marked as Confirmed so you can easily select the interesting ones to include in the final pentest report.

5. Clone a predefined or a custom pentest robot

If you’re a heavy user of our pentest robots automation feature, you can now clone a predefined pentest robot or any of the robots you’ve already built.

Go to your pentest robot, click on the Clone button from the Actions tab, and use it in your engagements as you need – edit it, improve it or share it with your team.

6. Manually reset the API key authentication on your account

From your account, you can now reset your API key manually.

To do this, go to My Account, select Plan details, and click on the Reset API key button.
