You gave me some greatly appreciated feedback for 0.4.3-0.4.1 and this bugfix release is my response. It doesn’t contain anything earth-shattering but merely sorts out a few pesky issues. More specifically:
This plugin wasn’t as thorough as it should have been and didn’t keep track of all exchanged cookies; that meant that the login operation would fail under certain circumstances.
For some reason the proxy plugin was unable to load properly when Arachni was being run from a Rails env — due to some namespace Ruby quirk.
Added more fingerprints for /etc/passwd, looking for a mail account instead of only root.
Web User Interface v0.4.1.1
The top-level menu auto-refreshes to display the latest data (scan progress, notification, etc.) however that isn’t applicable when the user is not logged in. The auto-refresh behavior has now been updated to be enabled for logged in user only.
Scan monitoring – error log
The scan monitoring page should show an error-log when the scan has encountered errors, however that wasn’t happening because the system was failing to store error-messages retrieved over RPC.
