More comprehensive Web spidering of bootstrap paths
- Web spidering scans now feature better coverage of bootstrap paths with meta refresh tags, increasing your overall security visibility of exposed Web assets. Bootstrap paths are base URL paths for applications that are not linked to from the main Web site that is being spidered. A meta refresh tag instructs a Web browser to refresh a current page automatically after a specified time interval, or to retrieve a different URL upon refreshing.
