Nessus 7.1.1 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.

Note: If your upgrade path skips versions of Nessus, 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.

What's New

  • 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" on the agent, and requires Nessus Agent 7.1.0.
  • 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 and requires Nessus Agent 7.1.0.
  • Automatically maintain unique agents in Nessus Manager. This eliminates situations where multiple entries for the same agent can appear in Nessus Manager. This requires Nessus Agent 7.1.0.
  • Updated third-party libraries with known vulnerabilities, see the security advisory for more information.

Bug Fixes & Improvements

  • Agent linked and unlinked status is visible in the Nessus Manager UI.
  • Re-installation can remove previous installation data.
  • Fixed error message that appeared during latest install of Nessus Manager.
  • Unlinked Agents won't count against licenses limit when scanning.
  • Fixed unlink button on Agent details page.
  • Fixed unlinked Agents counting against Agent total.
  • Delete Agents token from db when unlinking an Agent.
  • Fixed inappropriate error notification on setting "Unlink inactive agents after" greater than 90.
  • Fixed inconsistent Error When Unlink Day > Remove Days.
