Arachni v0.4 Released – High-Performance (Open Source) Web Application Security Scanner Framework

Check Your Web Security with Acunetix

Arachni is a high-performance (Open Source) Web Application Security Scanner Framework written in Ruby.

This version includes lots of goodies, including:

  • A new light-weight RPC implementation (No more XMLRPC)
  • High Performance Grid (HPG) — Combines the resources of multiple nodes for lightning-fast scans
  • Updated WebUI to provide access to HPG features and context-sensitive help
  • Accuracy improvements and bugfixes for the XSS, SQL Injection and Path Traversal modules
  • New report formats (JSON, Marshal, YAML)
  • Cygwin package for Windows

New plugins


  • ReScan — It uses the AFR report of a previous scan to extract the sitemap in order to avoid a redundant crawl.
  • BeepNotify — Beeps when the scan finishes.
  • LibNotify — Uses the libnotify library to send notifications for each discovered issue and a summary at the end of the scan.
  • EmailNotify — Sends a notification (and optionally a report) over SMTP at the end of the scan.
  • Manual verification — Flags issues that require manual verification as untrusted in order to reduce the signal-to-noise ratio.
  • Resolver — Resolves vulnerable hostnames to IP addresses.
