A new version of SSA (Security System Analyzer) has been released – version 1.5.1.
SSA is a scanner based on OVAL, the command line tool provided by MITRE is not very easy to use so the guys at Security Database decided to write a GUI to make it simple to use and understand and then free the security testers community to take advantage of it.
+Based on OVAL 5.2 build 11 (bugs fixed)
– Corrected bug in EntityComparator::ParseVersionStr(). Added error checking to the function to enusre that the input version strings are in a valid format.
-Removed VC7 project from source distributions.
Now SSA relies on CPE (common Platform Enumeration) names to display inventories.
+ SSA now supports VISTA definitions.
+ Added Menu Help
