Nessus Agent 7.3.1 Release Notes - 2019-03-26

Changed Functionality

  • Improved agent check-in logic to improve reliability of agent scan result uploads

  • Improved support for unicode characters in scan reports

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue where an agent running on an AWS EC2 M5 instance would not report that it was running in AWS EC2

  • Resolved an issue where agent scan results would not upload under certain conditions.

  • Resolved an issue with the RPM installers stopping all nessusd processes on the host (Only a problem if both Nessus Scanner and Nessus Agent are installed).

    Note: Operating systems that use the RPM installer should upgrade via the RPM package to receive this latest RPM fix. Upgrading an RPM installation via the feed will leave the RPM associated with that agent on the host.

Upgrade Notes

  • Prior to deploying the GA version of 7.3.1, the EA version must be uninstalled.
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.
