I am very impressed with your product. My question is that how Arachni will update its plugins and list of vulnerabilities inorder to check against the latest vulnerabilities. Does it has checks dynamically or it is hard coded defined.

    Arachni doesn't test for known vulnerabilities on specific products, it performs blackbox testing, so checks or plugins aren't being added frequently enough to warrant an update mechanism for those.

    However, the project itself could use an update mechanism for bugfixes and release updates, but I haven't gotten around to implementing that yet.

    I'm afraid that you'll need to manually download new releases as they become available.

    Dear Tasos Laskos,

    How can I add additional list of vulnerabilities in arachni, I mean whether
    it is plugin or any other area where I have to make changes or add
    additional modules.

    To add more vulnerability checks you need to add more check components, for examples you can see the existing ones and use them as a base.
