Greenbone OS 22.04.4 released

For GOS 22.04, a new patch level is available:

The release fixes a bug where the switch release from GOS 21.04 to GOS 22.04 and the migration of the gvmd database would fail if the PostgreSQL package was updated to version 13.8.0 or later.

The scanner received several improvements and bug fixes. Among other things, support for Slackware Linux packages was added to the Notus scanner, and the new scanner preferences alive_test_ports and test_alive_wait_timeout were added to fine-tune the Boreas Alive scanner.
Several issues related to the comparison of RPM packages that led to false positives were fixed. Furthermore, an error was fixed where the values set for Maximum concurrently scanned hosts and Maximum concurrently executed NVTs per host were limited to 15 and 10 respectively, even if the appliance model supported larger values.

In addition, the release includes a security fix that addresses a current CVE for third-party libraries included in GOS.

The packages gvm-tools and python-gvm included in GOS were updated to version 22.9.0 and 22.9.1, respectively.

In total, GOS 22.04.4 covers 10 improvements, 10 bug fixes and 1 security fix. For a complete list of changes, see the Roadmap & Lifecycle page:
