Application CVE detectionโ€‹

We've all been on the Zoom meeting when our coworkers share their screens and every browser window shows the "relaunch to update" badge. How long has Bob in accounting been browsing the web with that unpatched browser? A day? A week? A month? It's hard to know your organization's level of exposure if vulnerability scanning stops at the OS. Go further with new application CVE detection for non-OS installed packages, starting with the detection of vulnerable Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome releases.

A new Software tab on the asset detail page shows Mondoo-detected software vulnerabilities. Details include impact level and additional risk factors if known exploits exist for the application.

Software vulnerabilities

Want to view data on an asset's individual vulnerabilities? New Vulnerabilities and Advisories tabs let you dive directly into the individual risks on your assets.



CIS Microsoft 365 Foundations 3.0 policyโ€‹

Mondoo now includes version 3.0 of the CIS Microsoft 365 Benchmark policy. This updated policy includes new and updated checks to keep your Microsoft 365 environment secure, including:

  • 10 new Microsoft Teams checks
  • 8 new Microsoft SharePoint checks
  • 6 new Microsoft Power BI checks
  • 15 updated checks with improved descriptions, remediations, and query values

Improved CIS Azure Foundations policy queriesโ€‹

Reworked queries in the CIS Azure Foundations Benchmark policy provide more reliable results and improved output so you can quickly find and secure your Azure resources.

Improved asset overview informationโ€‹

Understand your assets at a glance using expanded asset overview information in Mondoo 10.1. New cloud, hardware manufacturer, hardware model, and serial number data are included for operating systems, allowing you to quickly track down assets.

Asset overview data

Expanded macOS and Windows inventory packsโ€‹

We've expanded the Windows and macOS inventory packs to expose critical asset configuration data.

macOS queriesโ€‹

  • SMBIOS system information
  • Storage data
  • Power data
  • Network data
  • Configuration profile data
  • Uptime
  • Running processes
  • Kernel modules
  • Mounts
  • Active network connections
  • SSHd configuration

Windows queriesโ€‹

  • Uptime
  • Running processes
  • Scheduled tasks
  • Expanded data for BitLocker volumes
  • Expanded data for security products
  • Expanded data for services

CVE detection on Linux Mintโ€‹

Keep your Linux workstations fresh with expanded CVE detection support for Linux Mint.

Improved Azure authenticationโ€‹

No matter how you pass your authentication, Mondoo has your back with expanded authentication capabilities for scanning Azure subscriptions. Previously, running cnspec scan azure only loaded authentication credentials from the azure CLI. Now, scans can also load credentials from shell environment variables, workload identity, and managed identity, in addition to the CLI configuration.

CVSS scores in JSONL exportsโ€‹

Data integrations now export JSONL data with CVSS scores, so you can feed this critical risk data into external systems that consume your data exports.
