Release Announcement
product & content updates

This Rapid7® Nexpose® 5.7.10 release features filtering of displayed vulnerability data, enhancements to update and activation processes, and scan-related improvements.


These release notes document what's new in this Nexpose release. Your Nexpose installation will automatically download and install content updates. If you have enabled Nexpose to install product updates, it will do so as well. For information about restarting Nexpose after updating, see the Nexpose release announcement FAQ.

See only the vulnerabilities you want to see | product

You can now tailor your view of the vulnerabilities displayed in the Vulnerability Listing table of the Web interface. By applying filters similar to those used for dynamic asset groups, you can display specific vulnerabilities based on criteria such as risk scores or certain sites that contain affected assets. This allows you to limit the sheer number of vulnerabilities displayed in the table or to see only high-priority vulnerabilities.

See a short video about this feature.

More relevant policy scan results | product

If a service authentication issue occurs during a policy scan, policy rule results will no longer default to Not Applicable (N/A).

Accurate summary data for simultaneous scans | product

A bug fix ensures that  the summary data for sites and assets updates correctly after simultaneous scans of a site, or when a vulnerability exception is applied to an asset not discovered in the most recent scan of a site.

Better handling of vulnerability exceptions in certain situations | product

A bug fix corrects an issue in which applying an instance-level vulnerability exclusion on a vulnerability summary page did not update the Affects table  under certain circumstances, even though the exception was always applied.
