Nessus Agent 7.1.0 Release Notes - 6/13/2018

This release is end-of-life (EOL). Upgrade to a supported version. For information about EOL dates and policies for Tenable products, see the Tenable Software Release Lifecycle Matrix and Policy.

What's new

Note: If your upgrade path skips versions of Nessus Agent, Tenable recommends reviewing the release notes for all skipped versions. You may need to update your configurations because of features and functionality added in skipped versions.
Note: Each of these new features require Nessus Manager 7.1.1.
  • Automatically update the hostname of an agent in Nessus Manager when it changes. This feature allows the agent hostname to be updated automatically instead of requiring the agent to be unlinked and relinked. This requires the "update_hostname" parameter to be set to "yes".
  • Export full list of agents via the Nessus Manager UI. This provides customers, who do not leverage the Nessus API, the ability to export the agent details as a .csv report for use.
  • Track agents and attributes after unlinking. This provides users the ability to continue tracking unlinked agents and associated details. This is an opt-in feature.
  • Automatically maintain unique agents in Nessus Manager. This eliminates situations where multiple entries for the same agent can appear in Nessus Manager.
  • Updated third-party libraries with known vulnerabilities, see the security advisory for more information.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Fixed an issue where a database lock could occur in certain situations preventing agent scan results from being processed properly.
  • Fixed an issue where the agent failed to link through a proxy when using the offline install feature.
  • Fixed an issue where the Windows agent installer was not respecting the silent uninstall option.
  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.2o.
  • Updated PCRE to 8.42.
  • Updated expat, libjpeg, Libxml2, libxslt, libxmlsec and zlib third-party libraries
