Major improvements to the Go Modules dependencies detection have been introduced with the addition of a new optimized resolver for Modules, controlled by a separate set of parameters. Two separate settings are now supported: new parameters for controlling the new Modules resolution and the existing Go parameters for controlling Modules and the other Go package managers. The new Modules resolver detects only the actively-used dependencies and includes the following new parameters:

  • go.modules.resolveDependencies

  • go.modules.ignoreSourceFiles

  • go.modules.removeDuplicateDependencies

  • go.modules.includeTestDependecies. 

To use the enhanced Modules dependencies detection, it is recommended to turn on the new resolver by setting go.modules.resolveDependencies=true and disable the current Go resolver by setting go.resolveDependencies=false.

Security Advisories

  • Improved detection accuracy of vulnerabilities found in Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions.

  • Added support for new security advisories.

The enhancements above will be deployed gradually, and may result in some WhiteSource organizations experiencing a change in vulnerability alerts over the next month.

Documentation Updates

  • The following documentation changes were implemented:

    • The Deprecated Features topic was deprecated and the content was moved to the Notices page.

  • Added ability to map an Azure Project to an existing WhiteSource Product in addition to creating a new WhiteSource Product) via the Project Settings > Extensions > WhiteSource page.

Resolved Issues

  • Several issues have been resolved regarding Docker Layers:

    • Layers with the same SHA1 were represented as one resource.

    • Layers with a SHA1 already created as “unknown” from previous scans were recognized as that resource, and therefore the display name did not reflect the layer

    • Layers with SHA1 were unnecessarily looked up in the index 

  • Discrepancies were found between the Alerts Widget and the Library Page.

  • Vulnerability-based alerting: In the 'Vulnerable Libraries' section on the 'Security Vulnerability' page, the libraries were not filtered by the specific CVE. As a result, the CVEs were ignored and the filter returned all the vulnerable libraries in the organization.

Notices

New Features and Updates

  • The Unified Agent now supports scanning Google Distroless images.

  • The optimized NPM resolution method, controlled by the npm.resolveLockFile flag, is now the default dependency detection for NPM.

Resolved Issues

  • Azure DevOps Services Integration: When opening the Security vulnerabilities tab in the Open Source Risk report, the data was not sorted by severity.

  • Azure DevOps Services Integration: Adding the WhiteSource task to a YAML-based pipeline without setting any of its parameters resulted in an error. As part of this fix, a default value was added for the cwd parameter.

  • Fixed failures of inventory update if artifactVersion exceeded the valid length.

  • The Unified Agent failed to parse a non-lowercase configuration value.

  • The Unified Agent failed to resolve NuGet dependencies when the project.assets.json file was not found in its standard location.

New Features and Updates

Web UI

Unified Agent

  • A new parameter, python.includePipenvDevDependencies, has been added to provide the ability to manage the dev dependencies. The default value is true.

Resolved Issues

  • When searching for a library via global search, then searching for a vulnerability via the same search, the page redirects to the library search page.

  • When resolving several requirments.txt files, the cache of the dependencies was not cleared between the different resolutions.

  • When running the Unified Agent, the ArchiveExtractor failed to extract files ending with an empty space.

  • In the “Source File Inventory” report, if users selected to change the library for files they had no permissions to, the Change Library action had no effect and no message was displayed. Now, this action can only be done by selecting the desired files, then Actions > Change Library menu. The users' permissions are validated and a proper message is displayed.

  • After repeatedly using "Assign Yourself", the pop-up window appears blank and users need to click "Add License Reference" or "Override All” in order to see the mandatory fields.

  • When running SBT Coursier, the Unified Agent did not run pre-step commands even though pre-step flags were activated.

  • Changes to licenses being updated either in the index (libraryDataSync API) or in the Admin Console did not trigger alerts calculation.

  • An Overview page 

  • A Getting Started page, with prereqs, download info, config info, etc.

  • A Parameters page

  • Advanced Topics (similar to an appendix)

Policies

A modified Policies page will be launched, with the intent to update existing content, fill in missing gaps, and create a linear flow. This page merges the two existing policies topics - Automated Policies and Managing Policies Throughout Your SDLC. The latter has been archived and is therefore no longer in use.

Resolved Issues

  • The Unified Agent’s Artifactory scanner failed to build a URL from strings that contained non-alphanumeric characters.

  • Dependencies defined in the gemfile.lock file with an exclamation mark suffix were wrongly resolved.

  • Policies where Action was defined as Issue failed to create Work Items issues.

  • Under certain conditions, when working with policies of the Issue type, exceptions occurred while loading Work Items data.

Resolved Issues - Azure DevOps Services Integration (added 10-November-2020) 

  • Fixed an issue where in some cases, users with non-admin permissions were not able to view the WhiteSource open-source risk report. All existing WhiteSource for Azure DevOps Services extension users will need to approve the extension permission changes that were applied in this version. To approve the new changes, do as follows:

    1. Go to Organization Settings > Extensions > Installed > WhiteSource for Azure DevOps Services.

    2. Click Review. The Authorize WhiteSource for Azure DevOps Services popup is displayed.

    3. Click Authorize.

  • Scanning a project based on a GitHub Repository led to a RangeError error.

Version 20.10.1.1 (2-November-2020)

  • Azure DevOps Services Integration: In some cases, when running a pipeline build containing a WhiteSource task, a toString() failed error was displayed in the WhiteSource build task logs, leading to a scan failure.

Version 20.10.1 (25-October-2020)

New Features and Updates

WhiteSource Core

  • In order to comply with industry standards, WhiteSource has decided to remove the option of searching a library via drag and drop. Library searching can now only be done by entering the library’s name (added November 1, 2020).

Azure DevOps Services Integration

  • Added the ability to specify custom Unified Agent Configuration parameters to be used by a particular pipeline build. For this, a new field, WhiteSource Configuration, was added to the WhiteSource task. For more information, see here.

Documentation Updates

Unified Agent

Beginning in version 20.10.2 (approximate release - November 8), a modified Unified Agent documentation repository will be launched, with the intent to increase usability, update existing content, fill in missing gaps, and create a linear flow.

The documentation will be spread over 4 contiguous topics (pages), in this order:

  • An overview page 

  • A Getting Started page, with prereqs, download info, config info, etc.

  • A Parameters page

  • Advanced Topics (similar to an appendix)

More details will follow in the next release notes.

Policies

Beginning in version 20.10.2 (approximate release - November 8), a modified Policies page will be launched, with the intent to update existing content, fill in missing gaps, and create a linear flow. This page merges the two existing policies topics - Automated Policies and Managing Policies Throughout Your SDLC. The latter will be archived and therefore no longer be in use.

Resolved Issues

  • When the project information object did not have a version in its coordinates, the Unified Agent failed to run.

  • The Unified Agent failed when trying to resolve a large PHP project.

  • Azure DevOps Services Integration: A pipeline build with the WhiteSource task failed to scan GitHub repositories when using a Linux build agent.

  • The optimized NPM resolution method, controlled by the npm.resolveLockFile parameter, did not handle duplicate dependencies correctly. This caused an increase in the size of requests sent by the Unified Agent.

  • When applying Create Issue policies, issues were created incorrectly for all projects in the organization (added November 1, 2020).

  • When updating group assignments, SAML incorrectly removed users from the domain (added November 1, 2020).

  • When entering multiple values for either groupAssignments or userAssignments in the setProductAssignments and setOrganizationAssignments API calls, these values were ignored. The fix - from now on, the first value is assigned (added November 1, 2020).

  • Users were unable to change a source file library if there was already an existing mapping with a comment (added November 1, 2020).

Version 20.9.2.2 (15-October-2020)

WhiteSource Core

  • CREATE_ISSUE policies defined in Product scope that were applied to libraries removed from in-house/whitelist, caused tickets creation in all of the organization's projects when there were no CREATE_ISSUE policies in the organization's scope.

Version 20.9.2.1 (15-October-2020)

Unified Agent

  • The default NPM dependency detection method was changed to running the "npm ls" command due to an anomaly observed in the Unified Agent requests size using the new optimized NPM resolution method.

Version 20.9.2 (11-October-2020)

WhiteSource Core

  • The optimized NPM resolution method, controlled by the npm.resolveLockFile parameter, is now the default dependency detection method for NPM. This change is introduced by switching the previous default value of npm.resolveLockFile from false to true. This will significantly improve the scanning time of NPM projects and produce more accurate results.

Functionality Changes

  • The license name of Oracle Development License (as it previously appeared in the application) will now appear according to its official name, Oracle Technology Network License Agreement.

Resolved Issues

  • During Kubernetes agent scanning, when the scanned component included the same image multiple times, irregularities occurred causing an exception.

  • In the Attribution report, GPL 2.0 with exception licenses was mistakenly displayed as insert GPL v2 license text here.

  • When scanning PHP, the Unified Agent threw an exception if one (or more) of the packages did not have a "source" element in the lock file.

Version 20.9.1 (4-October-2020)

New Features and Updates

WhiteSource Core

  • Currently, when accessing the Custom Attributes report, the report’s data is fetched automatically. This can be time-consuming if the organization has many libraries and many custom attributes defined. Beginning in this version, an Apply button has been added, enabling users to query the data on demand only.

Unified Agent

  • Beginning in this version, the strict requirement of running the Unified Agent with the configuration file has been removed. If the mandatory parameters are passed to the Unified Agent, in any of the supported methods, the Unified Agent can be run without failing even if the configuration file is missing.

  • Beginning in this version, if the Yarn lock file (yarn.lock) is found during the scan, it will be used for the dependencies detection, without the need to explicitly set the npm.yarnProject flag.

Resolved Issues

  • When applying policies to existing inventory from the organizational policies page, the product and project policies were ignored.

  • When reassigning all of a user’s pending tasks of a user, the inventory request approver was not properly updated.

  • When two Maven projects were defined with the same name, both projects were created however with partial data. The introduced fix will now add a suffix (_1, _2) to a project name in case there is more than one project with the same name.

Version 20.8.2 (13-September-2020)

New Features and Updates

  • Helm version 3 support is officially introduced for the Kubernetes integration.

Resolved Issues

  • If hex.ignoreSourceFiles was set to true, the Unified Agent did not ignore .erl source files.

  • When groups were created via SAML integration and were then deleted manually from the dashboard, an exception occurred.

Notices

  • Within the next two releases of the Unified Agent, a significant improvement to the NPM dependency detection will be introduced. An optimized NPM resolution method, controlled by the npm.resolveLockFile flag, will become the default dependency detection for NPM. This will be applied by changing the current default value of the npm.resolveLockFile flag from false to true. This will significantly improve the scanning time of NPM projects and produce more accurate results. 

Version 20.8.1.1 (2-September-2020)

Resolved Issues:

  • NuGet packages defined at packages.config and/or .csproj with inaccurate versions according to the NuGet version standard were displayed in the scan results without being recognized ("Requires Review"). Following this fix, these packages will no longer be displayed in the scan results.

Version 20.8.1 (30-August-2020)

New Features and Updates

Unified Agent

A new format of Docker project name is now supported - repositoryName - which is based on the Docker repository name only. This format can be applied by setting the docker.projectNameFormat parameter to repositoryName.

In addition, the already-supported format named repositoryFormat was changed to repositoryNameAndTag (the formal name format is still supported, however it will be deprecated).

There are now three supported formats:

  • The default format consists of the Docker repository name, tag and ID.

  • The repositoryNameAndTag (previously known as repositoryFormat) consists of the Docker repository name and tag.

  • The repositoryName consists of the Docker repository only.

Jenkins Plugin (2-September-2020)

  • Fixed CVE-2020-2213 

Prioritize

  • Aggregate Modules mode supported (using the -aggregateModules field).

Functionality Changes

  • In the Project Association page, the Product column was changed from a selection column to a text column. The project association is now only available by checking the desired project(s) and choosing “Assign to Product”, then choosing the desired product from the drop-down list.

  • When using “APPEND” update requests, in the rare case where only a TRANSITIVE dependency has been added - the new transitive dependency will be added as a direct dependency, so all of the application's mechanisms such as alerts and policies will be applied on it. This is a change to the current behavior. In order to have the new dependency added as transitive, users can then run another “OVERRIDE” Update Request after the append request.

Resolved Issues

  • When running the Gradle resolver, if the dependency is missing the Unified Agent will try to download .jar dependencies only.

  • In the rare use case of a change in the GAV coordinates of an artifact, Gradle scans didn't produce the correct signature for this artifact.

  • The Request Resolution Status Report displayed the wrong path on the top of the report.

  • In the Vulnerability Report, the Locations column was missing from the JSON format.

  • When scanning the plan.json file in a Haskell project, a nullPointerException would occur when building hierarchies where one child did not have dependencies.

  • In the application’s home screen, some bulk actions of approval/rejection of pending tasks were timed out. This caused the UI to hang and requests were not marked as reviewed.

  • When scanning a Docker image with source libraries, the “hierarchy” tree included duplications of the source library matched with those source files.

  • Layer information was missing when detecting FOSS components in Docker .tar files.

Version 20.7.3.1 (24-August-2020)

Resolved Issues:

  • When resolving a Gradle project with a deep dependency hierarchy, an index out-of-bound exception occurred.

Version 20.7.3 (16-August-2020)

New Features and Updates

Web UI

  • Beginning in this version, when creating/editing a policy based on a Jira project with a mandatory field from a type which isn't currently supported, but has a default value defined for it in Jira, the operation will succeed.

APIs

  • When a scan for a project is requested while there is already a scan for the same project being executed simultaneously, the new scan is being skipped. Starting in this version, the JSON file returned for the scan will specify the status SKIPPED instead of FINISHED.

Resolved Issues

  • In cases of empty status files in Debian Docker images, the scan resulted in zero dependencies.

  • In the Policies screens, a popup indicating that changes will not be saved was displayed even though all changes were properly saved.

  • A TimeoutException was thrown when calling the method updateNodesParentAndMr in the DependencyNodeRepositoryImpl class.

  • Priority and Assignee fields appeared in Jira-based policy creation, even when those fields were not defined in the Jira project itself.

  • Following a change in Jfrog Artifactory version 7 whereby the property name haAwareEtcDir was changed to etcDir, exceptions were thrown in the WhiteSource artifactory plugin.

Known Issues

  • Scanning docker images with source files leads to duplicate appearances of the source libraries in the Hierarchy view.

Notices

  • Within the next two releases, WhiteSource will be improving the Unified Agent configuration by removing the requirement to have a configuration file, if all the mandatory parameters are set (passed as command-line parameters or by environment variables).
