SQL injections are dead ... Long live injections!

@h3xstream h3xstream released this Jun 28, 2018 · 7 commits to master since this release

While SQL injection is considered by many as a (mostly) solved problem, injection vulnerabilities are still current because of all the injections possible in other API receiving SpEL or OGNL expressions, HTML (XSS), SMTP header or specialized query languages. In this release, new detectors and updates on old ones are likely to catch critical vulnerabilities that may lead to Remote Code Execution or sensitive data exposure.

Some modifications were made to support some edge cases of Kotlin. If you are a Kotlin developers, you should benefit greatly from this release. (Fix #387) (Tests #407, #409, #410)

Many built-in Java XML API susceptible to XXE were added to existing detectors. #138

Find Security Bugs is now automatically tested against Java 10. We will continue to compile the plugin with Java 8 to maximize the compatibility.

Thanks to the numerous contributors who have pushed changes that were integrate in this version:
