Passive Vulnerability Scanner 4.0.4 Release Notes - 2/12/2015

Note: Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS) is now known as Nessus Network Monitor (NNM).

This version of PVS upgrades OpenSSL to 1.0.0q.

Note: Some customers may notice that a HTML5 client user is logged out after accessing the Configuration page. This issue applies to 4.0.4 only and has been addressed with a plugin update. A manual plugin update may be necessary if the plugins have not been updated automatically.

Upgrade Notes

  • PVS 4.0 will automatically import configuration from pvs.conf and pvs-proxy.conf into a database. More details are available in the PVS 4.0 User Guide.
  • Copy the existing PVS license key file from the existing PVS to the workstation the initial setup will be completed from as the key will be requested during completion of the setup wizard
  • PVS 4.0 is compatible with SecurityCenter 4.6 and later.
