Faraday v1.0.22 incoming!

Faraday v1.0.22 Community, Pro and Corp Edition is now available! Get it before it gets cold!

Faraday is the Integrated Multiuser Risk Environment you were looking for! It maps and leverages all the knowledge you generate in real time, letting you track and understand your audits. Our dashboard for CISOs and managers uncovers the impact and risk being assessed by the audit in real-time without the need for a single email. Developed with a specialized set of functionalities that help users improve their own work, the main purpose is to re-use the available tools in the community taking advantage of them in a collaborative way! Check out the Faraday project in Github.

If you were already using our new GTK Interface, you'll be glad to know it is now the default! As of this release QT is considered deprecated. If you didn't get to try GTK before, don't worry: it is faster, stabler and much prettier than before. Most importantly, your workflow will not be hindered - GTK will be both familiar and exiting for our long time users.

Besides testing GTK until we were sure it was ready to be the default interface, we've added a couple of nice new small features. For example: you can now order the host sidebar by OS or by amount of vulnerabilities.

We also made some changes to the installation process in preparation for the soon-to-come Faraday Server and to make sure GTK works wonders for you without the need of manual intervention. Just relax and let Faraday install everything it needs to alleviate your job.

We also extensively improved the way Faraday behaves when you suddenly find yourself without a CouchDB connection. You will be presented with a dialog which will inform you of the problem and the possibility to try to reconnect. Meanwhile, the program will gracefully revert back to the Filesystem Database. 


And do not fear, the development of plugins has not stopped! With this release, you will get two brand new plugins: Ndiff and Netcat. Ndiff was developed with a very specific objective in mind: to allow the user to track changes in their infrastructure. It works with the popular Nmap tool, and it will create Info level vulnerabilities whenever it detects changes between two Nmap reports. The Netcat plugin was developed by community user Urma (thanks!) and supports both manually compiled, GNU and OpenBSD versions.

Pro & Corp Changes
  • Fixed a bug when trying to use the --login flag and CouchDB was not up.
  • Changes in installation: fixed names of packages in setup_server.sh.
