Visualizing the Stack Clash Vulnerability with Dashboards

Security teams should apply vendor patches immediately to protect their Linux, OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD and Solaris infrastructure from The Stack Clash vulnerability (also see the security advisory). To help in that effort, this blog post describes a new built-in Qualys AssetView dashboard to visualize The Stack Clash and quickly identify vulnerable assets in your organization.

Due to the nature of the vulnerability, the checks require authenticated scanning or the Qualys Cloud Agent.

This dashboard is dynamic and will update as vulnerable assets are discovered. Each widget is customizable if needed, and trending can be added to any of the count widgets for tracking remediation over time. The dashboard can also be filtered by tag to narrow the focus down to specific groups of assets.

To get started, go to the AssetView module and click “Create New Dashboard” under the “Actions” menu.

Select the “Stack Clash” Dashboard Template.

Give it a name, and click “Create.”
