Qualys Policy Compliance Notification: Changes Required for Oracle Assessments

We will be releasing new controls that will require some customers to make changes to their Oracle targets.

For customers that grant granular permissions to allow access to our Oracle assessment capabilities, new CID’s are being released that require additional rights to be granted.  Failure to grant the new rights will result in an error when you assess your Oracle environment.

We are providing advanced notice to give you time to implement these changes.  If you use an account with full read privileges or broader permissions than the minimum privileges recommended in the documentation, you will likely not be affected by this change.

This update will occur no earlier than August 15, 2015 to allow time for updates to your Oracle environment.

Please contact your TAM or technical support if you have any concerns or questions.
