Greetings all -


A new version of Qualys WAS was recently released.  It is part of Portal 2.42 - aka Qualys Cloud Platform 2.42 release - and it has been deployed to all Qualys shared platforms.  This release includes enhancements and bug fixes in both the UI and the API.  Here are the highlights:


  • Additional XSS payloads that are used in XSS Power Mode scans can now be enabled for a standard vulnerability scan as well.
  • Information Gathered QIDs (“IGs”) are now grouped appropriately into either a "Scan Diagnostic" or "Security Weakness" category.
  • A verbose option is now available in the Search Web Apps API call.
  • The "Scan Again" and "Cancel Scan with Results" options are now available via the API.


As always, if something in the UI or API doesn't seem to be working right, please open a support case by selecting Help--Contact Support while logged into the platform.  Feel free to post a question here on the Qualys Community site as well.
