Release Notes June 2019

Release Date: 2019-06-25

Version: G4.6-8.0

The following material is proprietary to Outpost24. This material may not be disclosed in any manner to anyone other than the addressee and employees or authorized representatives of Outpost24.

Important Notice

As our business grows, and with more customers joining us, it has been necessary to grow our infrastructure accordingly to ensure we can continue to offer an ever-improving level of service to our customers.

To meet these needs, it has been necessary to extend the IP range from which scanning may originate.

The additional IPv4 range from which scans may originate is:

This is in addition to our existing network range of:




These IP ranges are exclusive to Outpost24, and any IPS whitelisting for PCI ASV scans should include these new ranges.

This information will also be available in the Support > Resources area of Outscan.

New Features


Appsec has gone through a major redesign preparing it for a full-stack assessment platform.


Findings are now asset centric instead of scan schedules/configurations. They are recorded for each asset and deduplicated against the tracked findings based on the output from each scan. This allows correlation between different asset types and unifies the way of tracking risks for assets. We recommend reading through the Appsec user guides to get familiar with the new features.

Vulnerability Classifications

Vulnerability checks and findings are now associated with CWE allowing extending the classifications to both web application and infrastructure based findings.

The CWE mapped classifications are:

  • SANS25 (extended to all findings)
  • WASC (extended to all findings)
  • OWASP Top 10 2004 (extended to all findings)
  • OWASP Top 10 2007 (extended to all findings)
  • OWASP Top 10 2010 (extended to all findings)
  • OWASP Top 10 2013 (extended to all findings)
  • OWASP Top 10 2017 (extended to all findings)
  • CAPEC (new classification)

The classifications for the already existing checks will be populated retroactively in the future releases.

More Granular CVSS Score

Both CVSSv2 and CVSSv3 score has been split into base, temporal, and environmental score providing a more granular risk level metrics. These attributes are now available in the REST API and as columns in the Findings view.
Additional fixes:

  • Information about known public exploits for the reported vulnerability is now presented on a separate Exploits tab.
  • Comments have been moved out to a separate Comments tab and presented in a threaded manner. There is a visual indication when a finding has comments associated with it by an icon on the Comments tab header, with a number representing the number of new comments.

Scan Configurations

Flexible schedules: The schedules is updated to provide more flexible scheduling possibilities.

  • Schedules can be configured to end after n occurrences.
  • Schedules can be reused between configurations.
  • Each configuration is allowed to have one or more schedules.


As part of this release, all historical scan schedules will be migrated to the new scheduling system. Because this is a new scheduling system, all schedules show a start date set to the date of this release.  This does not impact these historic schedule in any other capacity.


Scans are now displayed in the Scans view as soon as they are started.


[Beta] Support for Selenium .side scripts making it possible to now record a login using the Selenium browser plugin and upload the .side script to use for authentication.

If you wish to help us test support for .side scripts, please raise a support request from the Outpost24 Support Portal to have the option available in the Scale platform.


In HIABs running Appsec, the Selenium browser runs in a restricted container on the scanner. To communicate with it, a network local has been set up on the host using the IP range (

If this range is used for something else together with the side scripts feature, it can cause issues when scanning those targets.


New specific Download section to download Outpost24 appliances.


Comments are now presented in a threaded manner.


  • Datasec continues to improve from MVP adding more capabilities and analytics concerning Windows shares and Windows users. Datasec has reached beta now and are available to selected customers.


  • Splunk integration now supports the Splunk CIM model as a new Event Notification type.
  • Authentication for VMWare vSphere has been added to the Scan Policy for use with Compliance scanning.
  • Appliance downloads have been moved to the new UI. A link has been provided in the existing Download location.
  • As previously announced, the HIAB Scanner name has been removed from the reporting grid. This information is still available, and filterable, in the Target Selection grid.
