Qualys Web Application Scanning Engine 8.15 has been released to all Qualys platforms including private cloud platforms. This release is part of our ongoing effort to continuously improve the scanning engine in Qualys Web Application Scanning.
This update includes the following changes:
- Check and report known vulnerabilities in web technologies identified through passive fingerprinting.
- Check and report EOL software in web technologies identified through passive fingerprinting.
- QID 150454 – Scan Configuration Settings – This QID will list configuration improvements for the scan that will help WAS to optimize the crawling and testing of the application. The first recommendation is for identifying URLs that can be potentially configured with path fuzzing rules.
As always, if you encounter any problems in your WAS scans, please open a support ticket by selecting Help > Contact Support while logged into the platform. Feel free to post a question on Qualys Community as well.
