I’m pleased to announce that WAS Engine 8.8 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:
- Improvements in OpenRedirect detections and reporting
- Improvements in detecting Autocomplete when Autocomplete has value set to ‘New-Password’
- Improvements/Additions to XSS payloads
- Improvements to QID 150144 – Form on HTTPS submits over HTTP
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.
