I work as an intern for Fednav Limited and I develop a solution that will automate the process of scanning diferrent website using Arachni. I put in place a Python script to make OS calls and call Arachni commands to execute a scan and send the report to a database. When I launch the script manually, everything is well executed. The scan is running until the timeout is reach and it collects good amount of information.
To automate my solution, I scheduled my script in a cron job. The job is working well but when the script is called, the scanning time of it is just a couple of seconds and I am not able to extract too much information. I don't know why it does this. Normally I just call the script and I have no interaction to do on the CLI. Does anyone know what could be causing this issue when I automate it?
