Scan Engine


Scan Engine has been upgraded to 5.2.10 from an earlier version. Under the LiveUpdate Content section of the Scan Engine web console the following can be seen:

- DDR Definitions are not there anymore

- New definition type added is: CAIC URL Definitions

- The URL definitions are no longer being updated
