Software-update: Nessus 8.14.0 early access

Nessus is een securityscanner die een netwerk kan scannen op bekende exploits en openstaande services. Resultaten kunnen vervolgens in verscheidene rapporten weergegeven worden. Ook kan de software geïntegreerd worden met andere pakketten, zoals CyberArk voor credentialmanagement en emm-oplossingen van Microsoft, Apple, BlackBerry, MobileIron en VMware. Nessus wordt in drie verschillende smaken uitgegeven: de gratis te gebruiken Home-editie, en de betaalde Professional- en Manager-edities. Tenable heeft Nessus 8.14.0 uitgebracht in early access met de volgende aanpassingen:

New Features

The following are the new features included in Nessus 8.14.0:

CVSSv2 and CVSSv3 Support: Configurable Severity Base
  • You can choose whether Nessus calculates the severity of vulnerabilities using CVSSv2 or CVSSv3 scores by configuring your default severity base setting. When you change the default severity base, the change applies to all existing scans that are configured with the default severity base. Future scans also use the default severity base. For more information, see Configure Your Default Severity Base in the Nessus User Guide.
  • You can also configure individual scans to use a particular severity base, which overrides the default severity base for those scan results. For more information, see Configure Severity Base for an Individual Scan in the Nessus User Guide.
  • By default, new installations of Nessus 8.14 or later use CVSSv3 scores (when available) to calculate severity for vulnerabilities. Preexisting upgraded installations from earlier than 8.14 retain the previous default of CVSSv2 scores.
VPR Support for Nessus
  • Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR), the output of Tenable Predictive Prioritization, is a dynamic companion to the data provided by the vulnerability's CVSS score, since Tenable updates the VPR to reflect the current threat landscape. VPR helps organizations improve their remediation efficiency and effectiveness by rating vulnerabilities based on severity level – Critical, High, Medium and Low. For more information, see CVSS Scores vs. VPR in the Nessus User Guide.
  • You can now view a new tab for scan results, Top Threats by VPR, which displays the 10 most severe vulnerabilities as determined by their VPR score. For more information, see View VPR Top Threats in the Nessus User Guide.
  • VPR is a dynamic score that changes over time to reflect the current threat landscape. However, VPR Top Threats reflect the VPR score for the vulnerability at the time the scan was run. To get updated VPR scores for vulnerabilities in a scan, re-run the scan.
  • To ensure VPR data is available for your scans, enable plugin updates.
Top 10 Vulnerability Report
  • Customers can leverage Nessus Professional reporting capabilities to quickly understand and easily communicate the Top 10 vulnerabilities found in a scan. This helps to identify what vulnerabilities need to be remediated first and eliminates additional work of exporting and manually sending out this information. The report includes:
    • Top 10 Critical Vulnerabilities based on VPR and CVSSv2 or CVSSv3 for that scan.
    • Top 10 High Vulnerabilities based on VPR and CVSSv2 or CVSSv3 for that scan.
    • Most Prevalent Plugins by Number of Hosts by VPR and CVSSv2 or CVSSv3 for that scan.
Apple M1 Chip Support
  • Nessus now can be run as a native application on the Apple M1 chip without the need of running it in compatibility mode.
New plugin release notes
  • Tenable releases Nessus plugins multiple times a day. You can access a list of recently updated plugins directly from Nessus.

Changed Functionality and Performance Enhancements

The following additional enhancements are included in Nessus 8.14.0:
  • The Nessus user interface was updated to use more inclusive language.
  • Nessus backups now include concatenated certificate container .pem files.
  • Nessus was updated to use the latest version of OpenSSL 1.1.1j.

This version of Nessus is an Early Access release. To opt in to Early Access, contact your Tenable representative or configure the Nessus Update Plan in the user interface.
Ik zie dit meestal meer als een blik op wat gaat komen dan een versie die je in productie wilt gebruiken.
