What firewall rules are required to allow Nexpose to access the Cloud for the Dashboards to work? Our firewall is blocking a lot of communications from the scanner to the cloud. For example the connection eu.exposure-analytics.insight.rapid7.com (126.96.36.199) is blocked in the firewall. But also EXT-eu.exposure-analytics.insight.rapid7.com (188.8.131.52) is blocked. As this is using cloud services, it's possible that these addresses could change. Why is proxy awareness not available? This way we could just put in the url and even if the ip changes, this would not be a problem.

Do you have any suggestions for how I would go about querying for log data that occurs during a specific range of hours? I'd still like the ability to change the timeframe using the standard tooling [ie Yesterday, Last7Days, etc]. This could be useful when logs during off-hours have 'noise' that may be ignored during analysis and alerting or when we want to focus on things like peak usage times for multi-day comparison. If this is possible it might be a good example to include on the LEQL page.

Running Nexpose/InsightVM in VMware Workstation Pro 14 on Windows 10 host. Everything works. Am able to access Security Console via 10.x.x.177:3780 I am also able to access Metasploit Pro on https://localhost:3790 Once I connect to the corporate VPN, I lose connection to Security Console. I have tried using the VM in Bridged as well as NAT mode. I have tried changing the IP of the VM (within Ubuntu) to match the /24 range and netmask of the Corporate network as well as the laptops. In certain cases I can Ping my pentest machine in the corporate network, and can in some cases ping from the VM to the Laptop. In other cases ping doesn't go in or out. My last option that I will try is to setup an SSH Tunnel from the VM, to my Pentest Host within the corp network, then back out to my Laptop. This is convoluted but it may work. Could you provide an idea of VMWare Workstation setup where I could possibly avoid this nonsense?

I've been trying to find where this might be configurable. On the Scan history page, it comes up with the scan name. It's interesting (and annoying) that when exporting, I wouldn't get the same thing I see. On a big site with many scans, not having the schedule name is less than helpful.

Hi there, Was wondering what port needs to be opened between a local scan engine and a target server in order to perform a vulnerability scan? (The targeted server is fairly locked down behind local firewall etc. however need to perform a vulnerability scan on it). Thank you.

I am building Archer integration through a Postgres instance of the reporting replica Nexpose database. The "Vulnerability PCI Compliance Status" column does not appear to be in the reporting database table structure. I assume it's a calculation I can replicate but I do not know what it is.

Can anyone explain what determines the Pass/Fail status of the Vulnerability PCI Compliance Status? Specifically I'm talking about the "Vulnerability PCI Compliance Status" data field available within a CSV report template. The obvious answer is CVSS >= 4 = Fail but that is not a complete answer. DoS vulns and PCI deemed "automatic failure" vulnerabilities can affect the field. But I'm also finding that vulnerabilities with an approved exception will also cause a Fail to turn into a Pass. What other factors will alter this field? Is there any way to determine what caused the change in setting? For example, if I generate a CSV export report of devices in a particular asset group, how can I demonstrate to an auditor or a QSA WHY a particular vulnerability is set to "Pass"? Two examples of vulnerabilities that are unexplainably set to pass include VMSA-2012-0018: Update to ESX glibc package (CVE-2012-3405) (Vulnerability ID: 12966) and VMSA-2012-0013: VMSA-2012-0013 Update to ESX/ESXi userworld OpenSSL library (CVE-2011-4577) (Vulnerability ID: 13203). They have a Vulnerability Severity Level of 5 and 4 respectively. They have a Vulnerability CVSS score of 5 and 4.3 respectively. Neither have an exception. I would think they would be Fail. Yet they're both Vulnerability PCI Compliance Status = Pass. About the only thing I can find to justify the score is in the dim_vulnerability table there is pci_severity_score of 2 for both vulnerabilities. But I have no idea how pci_severity_score is calculated or why that is used instead of Vulnerability Severity Level or CVSS Score.

We are refining metrics and trying to determine the lifespan of vulns on our network. We'd like some benchmarks. Can you share your average time to detect vulnerabilities and the average remediation time? It's also helpful to know if you don't or can't get this information. We are using on-prem Nexpose (not InsightVM), so we are using sql queries to get this information. Thanks, Leslie

I am new to writing custom vuln checks but I am looking to write one that triggers off of the output of a command ran as an authenticated user on Linux hosts. End goal: Detect some of the malicious Python packages out there.

i am trying to run the Metasploit module MS08-067 and run the exploit on Windows XP SP3 lang:english target VM i configured the network options on the VMware to be bridged when i run the exploit the exploit completes but no session starts my target never updated , this means it isn't patched and no firewall is on and i tried two different payloads windows/shell_reverse_tcp , windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp and windows/meterpreter/bind_tcp with no use . every time i get the same result [*] Started reverse TCP handler on 192.168.1.5:4444 [*] Automatically detecting the target... [*] Fingerprint: Windows XP - Service Pack 3 - lang:English [*] Selected Target: Windows XP SP3 English (AlwaysOn NX) [*] Attempting to trigger the vulnerability... [*] Exploit completed, but no session was created.
