Dastardly 2022.12.1

01 December 2022 at 15:42 UTC

This release significantly improves Dastardly's resilience and provides increased support for a wider range of applications, especially SPAs.

Most importantly, we've fundamentally changed the way Dastardly's scanner navigates using its built-in browser. As a result, you may now be able to successfully scan a number of sites that were previously incompatible with automated vulnerability scans. In particular, you should see much better results on sites that rely heavily on navigation initiated by client-side JavaScript.

We've also dramatically improved our browser process management, resulting in much lower memory usage during scans.

Browser upgrade

This release upgrades the browser used by Dastardly's scanner to Chromium 108, which patches a number of security issues.
