  • SQL Injection 500 syntax errors will be reported in QID 150056 instead of QIDs 150003/150047.
  • Report non-Swagger or OpenAPI json file as an invalid in QID 150291.
  • Improved reporting for Login Brute Force QID 150049 to report logout response body.
  • Backoffice option to enable Postman scan to launch using Duktape embedded JavaScript engine or standard WAS browser engine.
