Scan Notification

The Scan Notification has been improved by allowing to attach a report to the mail sent at the end of a scan, if vulnerabilities have been found. The report is the standard Vulnerability Scan Report without solutions, which is also available through the web interface at the end of the scan. Moreover, it is possible to enter multiple recipients, separated by comma, who will receive the same mail. It is also possible to change the sender’s email address. This function is available through the new Scan Notification Sender submenu in the System menu. When you change the default sender’s email address, the notification mail will arrive as sent from that address. The subject and the body of the notification mail have been improved as well, using the html format.


Offline Helpers

To help users in the process of getting online with the Penetrator, a variety of helpers have been created. The first one is a new Popup that appears at the topright side of the page, to explain what is possible to do when the Penetrator is not online. The same information is also available dragging the mouse over the Internet: Offline text, as shown below.

Another Popup will appear with the link to a page with some videos on how to get online. The same page can be reached clicking on the icon of a little camera that appears next to the Offline text when the unit is offline.

Videos are stored locally on the Penetrator and can be viewed with any web browser with the Flash plugin installed.
