Feature Highlights

Oracle Database Signatures (2019)

With the 2.4.722-4 release, Qualys Vulnerability Management extends its support for Oracle DB authentication to include instance-based discovery support for quarterly released Oracle Database patches, which was earlier limited to port-based discovery. Each Oracle Database QID will now display port and instance information in the result section. This enables customers to see multiple instances running on same port. These changes will be in effect for all 2019 and later Oracle Database QIDs.
