Release Notes August 2020

Release Date: 2020-08-31

Version: G4.19-13.0 


Future Changes to How We Report Some Netsec Findings

As we continually improve our scan engine and the ways we report findings, we also collaborate with customers who provide valuable feedback on how we report certain findings to ensure that we can provide the best possible information, tied to the highest accuracy we can achieve. We also want to ensure we remove all possible confusion from findings and how we find them.

Based on feedback from a large number of customers, we are working towards refactoring the way we report the port number for what we term Implied Vulnerabilities where we may not be able to authenticate with the Operating System, but we can use other information gathered to make accurate assumptions.

For example, we enumerated the version of Windows based on another service (HTTP, SNMP etc.), and report the finding as TCP 445 on Windows or TCP 22 for Linux. If this port is unavailable there is a potential to cause some confusion if findings where reported on TCP 445, and that port was not registered in the port scan phase. To mitigate this risk for confusion, the assumed port number is now reported as Generic.

We are working towards ensuring that this change has as little impact on your current workflows as possible, and how we can ensure the continuation of Accepted Risks and False Positives across this change. Further updates will be provided during the completion of this change.
