We have had some busy days, and our newest version of BitNinja is now available.
Most systems will automatically update, if you have specific settings or applications preventing automatic updates, you can follow our documentation on how to proceed to have the latest version installed.
A quick summary covering the update:
Removed /usr/*/www from the excluded paths for Malware Detection.
- In specific environments, this has led to BitNinja not scanning this directory, resulting in sub-par malware performance.
Fixed a bug where in certain edge-cases the Malware Detection module ignored whitelisted files or patterns due to filesystem cache.
- In specific cases whitelist filtering was ignored when scanning a new malware signature, resulting in quarantining files that have been previously whitelisted.
Fixed a bug where the WAF Manager could not start when the server had more than 160 IP addresses.
- This issue has prevented big machines from utilizing WAF in some cases.
A feature called “Extended analysis“ has been implemented which will scan files that were deemed safe previously. With the help of additional rules in search of suspicious patterns.
- This ensures we find even more malware on your servers.
This update improved stability on bigger machines and enhanced the Malware Detection module with extra capabilities.
