RSA, The Security Division of EMC, announces the release of Web Threat Detection 5.0.1. The release includes product enhancements and 70 fixes. The highlights of the release are:




1)     Single sign-on functionality introduced in 5.0, has been enhanced to include login for Configuration Manager by adding ÔSystem AdministratorÕ permission.


2)     Configuration Manager is now authenticated via RSA Web Threat Detection authentication APIs instead of Basic Auth.


3)     Logs are parsed and displayed correctly in the Transaction Viewer. This addresses the known log parsing issue from 5.0.


4)     All Saved Searches including the ones with duplicate names will be displayed. Since, all Saved Searches have a unique identifier, it is now possible to delete a specific Saved Search.


5)     Error massages, now contain, less information about parameter values. Though these parameter values were not exploitable, they are removed for security purposes.


6)     Incident reference number is now available while exporting an Incident to CSV. When Incident is exported to CSV, the Incident Number is now included.


7)     String look up functions in rule writing are made case insensitive.


8)     Attribute values are decoded correctly in the Stream View. 






The RSA Web Threat Detection platform runs on CentOS 6.x or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x.
