VulnWhisperer 1.8 releases: Create actionable data from your Vulnerability Scans
VulnWhisperer is a vulnerability data and reports aggregator. It will pull all the reports and create a file with a unique filename which is then fed into logstash. Logstash extracts data from the filename and tags all of the information inside the report (see logstash_vulnwhisp.conf file). Data is then shipped to elasticsearch to be indexed.
This release has been focused on stabilizing the project, fixing bugs and improving existing processes and offering a more consistent and easy to deploy product to the end-user.

There are a few configuration steps to setting up VulnWhisperer:
- Configure Ini file
- Setup Logstash File
- Import ElasticSearch Templates
- Import Kibana Dashboards
To run, fill out the configuration file with your vulnerability scanner settings. Then you can execute from the command line.
vuln_whisperer -c configs/example.ini -s nessus
vuln_whisperer -c configs/example.ini -s qualys
Next, you’ll need to import the visualizations into Kibana and setup your logstash config. A more thorough README is underway with setup instructions.
For windows, you may need to type the full path of the binary in vulnWhisperer located in the bin directory.
