April 2024 Changes

  • Get far-reaching findings with the Network Scanner

    We've introduced crucial detections for security issues that expand your attack surface:

    • Publicly exposed VNC, MSSQL, and LDAP services - findings now flag if these services are publicly accessible on the Internet, so you can tighten your network's security posture

    • CVE-2023-3824 (CVSSv3 9.8) - stack buffer overflow in PHP that leads to RCE

    • CVE-2023-44487 (CVSSv3 7.5) - we enhanced detection accuracy for HTTP/2 Rapid Reset by checking if the target supports the HTTP/2 protocol and the HTTP/2 RST_STREAM directive

    • Comprehensive DNS records - see a new finding when a target has DNS records available (A, AAAA, MX, NS, SOA, TXT, SPF, CAA, CNAME) and get deeper visibility into the target’s domain structure.

  • Confirm business risk with Sniper’s new precision strikes

    Sniper just got sharper with new exploits for two critical CVEs:

    • CVE-2024-0204 (CVSSv3 9.8) - assess the business risk of the Authentication Bypass vulnerability in GoAnywhere MFT, which leads to RCE by uploading a webshell 

    • CVE-2024-1212 (CVSSv3 10) - validate the threat of exploiting this Remote Code Execution vulnerability in Progress Kemp LoadMaster

  • Leave no stone unturned with these Website Scanner upgrades

    Our Website Vulnerability Scanner now: 

    • Detects flaws in JWT implementations by checking if web apps that use JWTs for authentication allow them to have a None or random signature, creating security risks

    • Runs faster light web app scans that also come with detailed requests and responses for each finding 

    • Provides extra information about spidered responses in evidence which now includes the status code, page title, and page size for each URL

    • Extracts proof of exploitation for Linux OS command injection in the form of hostnames and usernames.

  • Zoom in and out on details across your projects

    3 improvements you’ll notice as you log into your account:

    • Single sign-on with Microsoft - jump straight into action using your existing Microsoft account

    • View all assets across workspaces - easily search for, identify, and manage duplicate assets from all your workspaces at once.

    view all assets

    • Unified notifications across integrations: you can now get the same notification through multiple services, in preparation for even more integration options we’ll launch in the future.

    multiple integrations

  • Discover subdomains quicker and more effectively

    The Subdomain Finder now uses external APIs tests in light scans to return subdomains faster by accessing online databases. We also increased the list of external APIs so it extracts more subdomains for your targets.

March 2024 Changes

  • Get better results for Light Subdomain Finder scans

    We upgraded the reporting limit for Light scans by 10x! The Subdomain Finder now provides up to 1000 entries and includes unresolved results so older subdomains are available.

  • Don’t miss a thing with new detection modules in the Network Scanner

    Thanks to our security research team, you can now detect:

    Speaking about Roundcube, a couple of months ago we published an analysis - and public exploit - for CVE-2021-44026, an SQL injection vulnerability in the open-source mail client.

    The Network Scanner now also generates explicit findings for sensitive services that shouldn't be exposed on the internet (e.g. SMB, RDP, MySQL), which are easier to include in your reports.

    • Network Scanning

    • CVE

    • RCE

  • New home for Scan with Tool

    The Scan with Tool button has a fresh look and a new location. It's now called New Scan and you’ll find it at the very top of the sidebar. We are working to make your scanning experience even better in the future!

    Scan with Tool button

  • Services statuses - now online

    This is something we promise you’ll always see in our new status page. 🤞The page includes statuses for our public website, the blog, the platform, the API, and more!

  • Improved evidence for Nuclei findings from the Network Scanner

    As some of our customers requested, we enhanced the evidence section of findings that the Nuclei engine generates. Now, you’ll receive more relevant details about how the engine produced a finding.

    • Network Scanning

  • A fresh look for the Scan results page

    We streamlined the look and feel of the Scan results section, keeping it as valuable as ever. We’re rolling out more visual updates for all our tools in the coming months, so stay tuned!

  • New tool: know your targets better with People Hunter

    People Hunter identifies the people associated with the target, using publicly available information from web server responses. 

    Details such as email addresses (and their patterns) and social media profiles help you identify potential targets for social engineering attacks.

    People Hunter tool

  • Get more from the Team feature

    We introduced a new view in the Team feature: Shared with me to help you identify who has shared which information with you. Additionally, the table view has returned, making visual comparisons easier.

    Shared with me in the Team page

  • Two new modules in the Website Vulnerability Scanner

    Two new modules in the Website Vulnerability Scanner:

    • Detection for misconfigured CSP Headers - identifies misconfigured content-security-policy headers on your website, enabling you to control resource loading and their allowed URLs.

    • Enumerable Parameter Detector - explores possible enumerable parameters in your website. Some findings might reveal insecure direct object references after manual examination.

    enumerable parameter detector

    • Web app scanning

February 2024 Changes

  • Know what’s new - right from your dashboard

    Until a few days ago, our product updates were a bit hidden from view, which made it harder for you to find out about them and actually use them. 

    So we added two new sections to your dashboard:

    • What’s new - that brings product updates (text and video) and fresh pentesting guides 

    • Help - which makes it easier to dip into how-to’s, video tutorials, and FAQs

    New dashboard

  • Start a scan from the Scans section

    We noticed some of our customers needed an easier way to start scans from the (obviously named) Scans section, so we added it! 

    The New scan button makes it easy to jump into action the moment you know where you want to dig deeper. 

    New scans button

  • Nuclei fingerprinting in our Website Scanner

    Our Website Vulnerability Scanner gets stronger with each monthly update!

    We’ve integrated the fingerprinting capabilities from Nuclei into our proprietary tool - and it’s just the kickoff!

    Soon, we’ll start incorporating many more templates. Until then, the 40+ vulnerability checks our Website Scanner runs can surely keep you - and your team - focused and making progress. 

    Nuclei fingerprinting

  • More Nuclei detections in the Network Scanner

    We’ve also integrated a bunch of new Nuclei category templates on top of the configured ones our Network Scanner is already using (CVE, CNVD, SSL, network, WAF, DNS).

    New ones include: default-logins, exposed-panels, exposures, honeypot, IoT, miscellaneous, misconfiguration, takeovers, and vulnerabilities.

    Want to refresh your knowledge of what our Network Vulnerability Scanner can do? We just updated its public page:

    OpenAPI file detection

    By the way, we love to see customers truly make the most of our tools:

    We had a tool to scan our websites and endpoints automatically; the reports were not so good, and each additional URL was charged additionally (this doesn't scale in a micro-services architecture). solved all our problems; you can scan up to 1000 targets, the reports are so professional, and you can choose from dozens of different tools to analyze all aspects of an enterprise architecture.

    • Web app scanning

    • API security

  • Session Fixation Detector

    We've also introduced a new Session Fixation Detector to help you identify session hijacking risks. Using the mitigation recommendations will help you prevent unauthorized access to user sessions and sensitive data.

  • Automatic CVE filter mechanism for the Network Scanner

    We created an automatic CVE filtering mechanism for duplicated CVEs. For example, if the Sniper or the Nuclei engines find a CVE, only the Sniper finding will be displayed in the report. We'll show them based on prioritization (Sniper > Nuclei > OpenVAS).

    • CVE

  • Port discovery returns only open ports
