acunetix is a tool that is used to check for web vulnerability. I can't find the Linux version for it anywhere. Is is possible to install it on Ubuntu 12.04

Acunetix is available only for Windows Platform. You can try your luck by installing it using playonlinux.

But there are other alternatives to Acunetix called Nikto. To install Nikto, open terminal and type

sudo apt-get install nikto

Gowri, How did you install it? Using Playonlinux? – devav2 Nov 5 '12 at 13:25
Are you talking about Nikto? Nikto is a command-line tool. Open terminal and type nikto. – devav2 Nov 5 '12 at 13:34
