๐ŸŽ‰ FEATURESโ€‹

Faster GitHub Action Executionโ€‹

Problem: The Mondoo GitHub Action could rapidly scan content in your CI pipelines, but was slow to install and setup Mondoo Client during each run.

Solution: We've refactored the Mondoo GitHub Action to use our new cnspec container image. Not only do you get our latest command line experience, but also there's no need to install Mondoo Client during your GitHub jobs. This can reduce the time it takes to run your job by 30 seconds to 1 minute, getting you results quicker in your CI pipelines.

๐Ÿงน IMPROVEMENTSโ€‹

Additional CIS Linux Controlsโ€‹

We've updated our CIS Linux policies to implement the following controls:

  • AlmaLinux 8: Ensure FTP client is not installed
  • AlmaLinux 8: Ensure rsync-daemon is not installed or the rsyncd service is masked
  • Debian 8: Ensure inetd is not installed
