Tenable.sc 5.19.1 Release Notes (2021-09-01)

Note: Tenable recommends upgrading to the patch for this release, Tenable.sc Patch 202109.1, which includes fixes for potential vulnerabilities. For more information, see the Tenable Product Security Advisory.

You can download the update files from the Tenable.sc Downloads page.

Tenable.sc 5.19.1 adds support for Oracle Linux 8, adds the option to use credentials for MongoDB scanning, and resolves an issue where the Scan Virtual Hosts option occasionally prevented mitigation of that data.

Note: This is not a mandatory release. Tenable recommends upgrading to 5.19.1 only if you need support for any of the previously listed scenarios. All of these changes will be included in the next Tenable.sc release alongside other new capabilities.

Upgrade Notes

If you are running Tenable.sc 5.9.0 or later, you can upgrade directly to Tenable.sc 5.19.1. If you are running a version earlier than Tenable.sc 5.9.0, upgrade to Tenable.sc 5.9.0 before upgrading to Tenable.sc 5.19.1.

If you are using Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 LTSB (build 14393.4104), you may need to add your Tenable.sc installation to the “Trusted Sites” zone in order for the application to load.

Tenable recommends performing a backup before upgrading Tenable.sc. For more information, see Perform a Backup in the Tenable.sc User Guide.

Note: If your upgrade path skips versions of Tenable.sc (e.g., upgrading from 5.6.2.1 to 5.9.0 to 5.19.1), 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.
