    Can you grant me permission to perform an identical scan against the same site, so that I can try and reproduce the issue?

    i would like to send you the url in a private message. i deleted the url for privacy concerns.

    the arachni webui tells me following error message after maybe 5mins. I have tested two options. direct and dispatcher.

    You can send it to me at: tasos.laskos[at]arachni-scanner.com

    Also, can you try using the arachni CLI executable? It probably won't make a difference but I need to know.
