I’m pleased to announce that WAS Engine 8.6 has been released to all Qualys platforms including private cloud platforms. This release is part of our ongoing effort to continuously improve the scanning engine in Qualys Web Application Scanning.
This update includes the following changes:
- Implemented improvements to parameter testing.
- Improved memory usage when testing ‘File Upload’ functionality.
- Implemented Smart Scan improvements and optimizations.
- Back office configuration to mask all passwords in scan reports for credentials supplied in standard form authentication records. This can be toggled on or off per subscription based on customer requirements.
As always, if you encounter any problems in your WAS scans, please open a support ticket by selecting Help > Contact Support while logged into the platform. Feel free to post a question on Qualys Community as well.
