TrustKeeper Scan Engine Update April 13 2015

The latest update to the TrustKeeper scan engine that powers our Trustwave Vulnerability Management product (including both internal and external vulnerability scanning) is now available.

This week we've added coverage for 13 new vulnerabilities relating to Cisco, FreeBSD, and WordPress. This week, we're also joined by our fellow colleagues from SpiderLabs Pentest to add to the fun and excitement.

These additions include detection for Java Debug Wire Protocol (JDWP), which is usually a guaranteed source of Java Remote Code Execution by Sebastien Macke and an extension to our existing coverage to detect Shellshock (CVE-2014-6271) on Dell SonicWall devices using a customized payload by Dan Turner.
