(New) File-based vulnerability assessment workflow rule

Starting with MetaDefender Core 4.19.1, file-based vulnerability assessment will be supported to be managed under each workflow rule.

(No longer need to toggle to disable/enable Vulnerability engine instead).



  • ENABLE VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT: Uncheck this option to ask MetaDefender Core to skip sending file input to Vulnerability engine for processing.

  • SEVERITY THRESHOLD: Explicit threshold as a minimum assessment verdict returned by Vulnerability engine to conclude “Potentially Vulnerable File” final verdict on file processing on MetaDefender Core.

  • TIMEOUT FOR VULNERABILITY SCANNING [IN MINUTES]: Specify timeout for vulnerability assessment progress, when timeout is hit, MetaDefender Core will stop ongoing vulnerability assessment task and mark it as “Timeout” result.
