I would like to know how much time does Qualys take to update its Knowledge Base for new vulnerabilities?
Qualys reports on new vulnerabilities added Monday - Sunday each week via email if you subscribe to notifications. However, out of band vulnerabilities are added on a more infrequent basis. For example, if a vulnerability is released in the middle of a week, then a new QID will be published in the middle of the week. Therefore, it is best to frequently check the KnowledgeBase for the most up to date vulnerabilities.
Can I have an update to this question plz?
Though not as per our published SLA but I see new QID's every single day except weekends. I have seen the KB get updated several times a day.
Thank u for all the reply.
Just as a heads up, be careful with brand new QID's that are placed. Most of them need about 72 hours before all of the signatures are created for them, and if you are trying to verify if you are vulnerable using brand new QID's be very wary that they might contain false positives and false negatives.
