** NeXpose vulnerability checks updated - IE 0day included- **
by  Tools Tracker Team
- 22 January 2010

NeXpose is a unified vulnerability solution that scans networks to
identify the devices running on them and to probe these devices for
vulnerabilities. It analyzes the scan data and processes it for reports.
You can use these reports to help you assess your network security at
various levels of detail and remediate any vulnerabilities quickly.

The vulnerability checks in NeXpose identify security weaknesses in all
layers of a network computing environment, including operating systems,


** Vulnerability Manager v20100115 in the wild **
by  Tools Tracker Team
- 22 January 2010

Denim Group's Vulnerability Manager allows security teams to import and
consolidate application-level vulnerabilities, automatically generate
virtual patches, monitor attack attempts, communicate with defect tracking
systems, and evaluate team maturity. Because this is done in a centralized
system, application security managers have greatly increased visibility
into and control of these processes, and they are collecting data that can
be used to support sophisticated conversations with (...)

** Nmap v5.20 released **
by  Tools Tracker Team
- 20 January 2010

Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free open source utility for network
exploration or security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large
networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP
packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network,
what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what
operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet
filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other (...)
