Enhanced Backport DetectionRNSS 6.2 introduces new and improved backported Linux distribution detection for both authenticated and unauthenticated scanning. This enhancement focuses on eliminating false positives for remote banner-based checks. Credential-based audits have also been enhanced in 6.2 with the addition of an operating system qualifier string to our credentialed audits that will suppress them for backported operating systems. For example, Retina will no longer run a generic SSH audit against a system that we know will backport the fix (Red Hat Enterprise Linux, RHEL, for instance).
Enhanced ReportsVersion 6.2 finalizes our efforts to enhance the design and to significantly improve performance of all reports within Retina Network Security Scanner. The following reports were enhanced in version 6.2: Non-Compliant, Access and Vulnerability Export (HTML).
