vDNA update and Snort Rules integration

Happy new year 2014! Our Team have integrated 30.000+ Snort Rules into our database and have improved our vDNA API. Integration is done automatically each day, without human interaction like usual Of course, we have added them to each alert, alert History, CPE, Dashboard, API...

Like our the last update, we have integrated Snort Rules into our database. Of course, we now display Rules information in each alerts and each CPE (Product or Version). At this time, 34 049 Snort Rules. As we promised, further integration will be quicker, it’s the case for this one, 2 days of work, 2 days of tests ... and 4 days of waiting.

  • An exemple could be a Microsoft Alert: MS10-044

For information, we do not provide raw Snort "Rules", but only, sid, description, and cat, and a link to snort website to register and download them.

Of course, with Snort Rules, our vDNA API have been updated and you could now retrieve Snort Rules information (sid, description...) for each Alert, like Metasploit, ExploitDB...

At least but not last, we have made some improvement on our website and API. Quality, code, performance. Dashboard is now generated in less that 0.1s and we use for that some caching method, like on some other pages.

At last, we have updated some graphics, hope they will help you:

  • new overall database alerts in the Dashboard

And of course, do not forget our Free Crosslinks Engine initiative. Of course, Security-Database provides this information for free to anybody. Hope you’ll enjoy playing with it and perhaps, share ;)

Next Step, more and more integration...

And an Happy new year!
