  • Viewing Issues

    After running a scan using Community Version v1.7.30 in free mode, I do not see a the Issues tab under Target >> Site Map. After looking at posted screenshots, I see a set of tabs above the Request | Response tabs. I do not have those tabs but instead have a listing of pages with column headers like Host | Method | URL | Params etc. How can I adapt the interface to show the Issues tab?

Not always it is reflected immediately to the ouput. Is it possible to passively scan all server responses and grep them all for my specific strings ? I know this is possible in Intruder. But I need it as a passive scan feature while br...
