Lucent Sky AVM 3.9 is the second milestone release as we get ready for the next major update - Lucent Sky AVM 4. In this release we continue to improve the third generation mitigation engine, available to customers who are in the Lucent Sky AVM Preview Program. Some of these improvements were also implemented to the current mitigation engine to improve its mitigation efficiency. In addition, the network stack of CLEAR Engine, the Web UI and IDE plug-ins were also updated.
Updates in Lucent Sky AVM 3.9 include:
Preview of third generation mitigation engine - The third generation mitigation engine is expected to expand the types of vulnerabilities that can be automatically remediated and enhance the accuracy and precision of the remediation, while increasing the performance and memory management when mitigating applications with a large number of vulnerabilities. To use the third generation mitigation engine, include mitigation,preview in the scan arguments. Improvements on the current mitigation engine - The current mitigation engine also received several enhancements and bug fixes to improve the mitigation efficiency. Improvements on CLEAR Engine network stack - The network stack was rewritten to improve transport efficiency. The improvement is most noticeable when uploading and downloading data that is more than a few hundred megabytes. Updates and bug fixes on Web UI and IDE plug-ins - The Web UI and IDE plug-ins for Visual Studio and Eclipse were updated. The updates were mostly to customer-reported bugs, such as the user is unable to sign-in with the Visual Studio Extension after applying Visual Studio 2015 Update 3.
