TrustKeeper Scan Engine Update - December 6, 2012

We have just completed the latest and greatest update to the TrustKeeper Scan Engine and it is itching to get to its scan on. This release includes 27 new vulnerability checks for major applications including Apache Tomcat, Cisco IOS/ASA, Microsoft Windows, ProFTPD and others.

This update also includes newly added support for Home Network Administration Protocol (HNAP), which is commonly used in SOHO routers for ease of use during initial configuration. Despite being a useful feature that helps users configure their router, some implementations of the protocol lack authentication controls and can allow anyone to perform administrative functions from the inside network. SourceSec Security Research documented some of these deficiencies on D-LINK platforms in this research paper and we have implemented these techniques in our latest update.
