Hello, the OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the release of openvas-client 2.0.2.
This is the second maintenance release of the openvas-client module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS) 2.0-series. It fixes some issues discovered after the release of openvas-client 2.0.1 and especially offers the further matured "OpenVAS LSC Credentials Manager" that can be used in conjunction with a new ssh_authorization.nasl which is available via the OpenVAS NVT Feed. If you are doing a lot of local security checks this might make your life easier. Thanks to the continuing audit of the code, a number of obsolete, unused and/or unnecessary functions were identified and removed. Effects when installing this version: * New default port of the server: Please be aware that openvas-server now listens on port 9390 by default since this port has recently been allocated by IANA for the Openvas Transport Protocol (OTP). This release of the client now uses the same default. * Option "Silent dependencies" is now "off" by default. Previously it was set to "on". If you didn't pay attention to this option in the past you might experience larger reports now. Main changes since 2.0.1: * The timeout-setting functionality has been made more robust. It has been moved to the plugin info dialog to make accessing this functionality easier. * A counter column for log messages has been added. * XML exports: A bug (http://bugs.openvas.org/867) which caused a corrupted protocol attribute during XML export when service names contained slashes has been fixed. This also fixes another bug which caused service names to show up in the protocol attribute. * A bug which prevented the display of signatures due to sometimes different "fingerprint" lengths has been fixed. * A bug which prevented the client from correctly determining certain server preference settings has been fixed. * Established automated source code documentation. HTML-Version is available under http://www.openvas.org/src-doc/openvas-client/current/index.html * Openvas-client now uses the IANA-assigned port 9390 for communication with the server. * A bug (http://bugs.openvas.org/858) which cause a segmentation fault when trying to list preferences or plugins on the command line without enabling batch mode has been fixed. * Support for improved management of SSH credentials has been added in accordance with Change Request #20 (http://www.openvas.org/openvas-cr-20.html) * The "Silent Dependencies" option now defaults to "no". Setting this option to "yes" causes possible error messages from NVTs executed as dependencies to not show up in client which is not desirable from a security viewpoint. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Joey Schulze, Michael Wiegand and Felix Wolfsteller.
