New DAST Detections

Continuing our trajectory of the worlds leading DAST scanner, here is a round up of this week’s new detections. These new plug-ins detect the below:

  • Flask cookies: Flask uses signed cookies to ensure that the data stored within cannot be tampered with by a client. However, if these cookies are signed with a weak key, several risks arise, such as cookie tampering, session hijacking, and privilege escalation. This can occur when a key is weakened by being too short, easily guessable or including common words.
  • JupyterLab new version detections: This plug-in identifies the version of JupyterLab an reports on any vulnerabilities for the detected version.
  • LDAP Injection: This is a type of injection attack that allows attackers to manipulate Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) queries made to an LDAP server. Successful injections can lead to unauthorised access to sensitive information, bypassing authentication or executing arbitrary commands on said server.


Benefits this feature provides:

  • Further detection capability available through the scanner.
