We're pleased to present Faraday v3.1. In this release we added a new feature called Searcher which allows users to create rules and actions.
We have also improved the Activity Feed and updated several plugins.
Custom Workflows with rules (Searcher)
The Searcher allows you to search for specific objects inside your Faraday workspace and then to execute several actions over them if some conditions are met.
For example, you can change the severity to Critical and confirm all vulnerabilities whose name begins with ‘Device’ and its parent being ’188.8.131.52’.
You can create exclusions, for example, if you know that certain ports should be ignored, you can create a rule to exclude these vulnerabilities of the ones that will be modified.
For more information on this new feature visit our official documentation here.
Activity Feed Upgrades
In this version we extended the Activity Feed to show more results and at the same time we allow to filter out empty results.
With this release we reviewed several plugins and we updated them to support their latest version:
Updated Continuous Scanning for Nessus 7
We also updated our Continuous Scanning for it to support Nessus 7. When Nessus released version 7, the API for starting scans was disabled. Faraday now downloads scheduled scan on Nessus and it only processes new results from Nessus (but if you are still using Nessus 6 it will work same as usual).
Workspace “Freedom of Speech” (Limitations of Workspace Naming Removed)
In the past, Faraday didn’t allow users to use numbers at the beginning of the workspace name, after our migration to Postgresql we decided to change this and with the release of v3.1 we allow more freedom for the workspace name. Currently we support alphanumeric strings on the workspace names.
And last but not less important...
