Scanvus now supports Vulners and Vulns.io VM Linux vulnerability detection APIs

Hello everyone! Great news for my open source Scanvus project! You can now perform vulnerability checks on Linux hosts and docker images not only using the Vulners.com API, but also with the Vulns.io VM API. It’s especially nice that all the code to support the new API was written and contributed by colleagues from Vulns.io. I just had to do the final test. Many thanks to them for this!

How can the support of these two APIs in Scanvus be useful?

  1. Now there is no binding to one vendor. Choose which service and price you prefer.
  2. The set of supported operating systems varies between Vulners.com and Vulns.io. If a particular Linux distribution is not supported by one vendor, it may be supported by another vendor.
  3. Vulners and Vulns.io implemented vulnerability checks independently of each other. If the results differ when scanning the same host/image, then implementation errors will be clearly visible.
  4. Scanvus is released under the MIT license, so you can use it as an example of working with the Vulners.com and Vulns.io APIs and use this code in your projects.

Here I would like to share my impressions, compare this event with last year’s and express my position.

CISO Forum 2022: the first major Russian security conference in the New Reality

Hello everyone! After a two-year break, I took part in Moscow CISO Forum 2022 with a small talk “Malicious open source: the cost of using someone else’s code”.

CISO Forum is the first major Russian conference since the beginning of The New Reality of Information Security (TNRoIS). My presentation was just on this topic. How malicious commits in open source projects change development and operations processes. I will make a separate video about this (upd. added Malicious Open Source: the cost of using someone else’s code). In this episode, I would like to tell you a little about the conference itself.
