4.3.0 Release notes

This section lists the changes in version 4.3.0. Every update of the Wazuh solution is cumulative and includes all enhancements and fixes from previous releases.

Highlights

Wazuh 4.3.0 includes many new additions, such as a remarkable enhancement with the new Wazuh indexer and Wazuh dashboard that improve the user experience and facilitate the management of the whole platform.

Version 4.3.0 enhances the performance of the Wazuh solution and adds new integrations such as the following:

  • Vulnerability Detector support for Amazon Linux and Arch Linux

  • New agent integrations with logs from Office 365 and GitHub

  • Improved RESTful API availability thanks to the API now using multiple processes

  • Now the Wazuh manager cluster uses multiple processes for improved performance

  • Wazuh now supports Logcollector with native macOS logs (Unified Logging System)

  • AWS S3 Server Access logs, Google Cloud Storage buckets, and access logs are now supported too

Below you will find more information about each of these new features.

With Wazuh 4.3.0, two new installers called the Wazuh indexer, and the Wazuh dashboard are available to users to facilitate installation, upgrades, and configuration. The Wazuh indexer is a customized OpenSearch distribution with configurations and tools needed to run out of the box for Wazuh. The Wazuh dashboard is a customized OpenSearch dashboards distribution with the Wazuh plugin embedded, plus new configurations and customizations.

The new Wazuh dashboard is a flexible and intuitive web interface for mining, analyzing, and visualizing data. It provides out-of-the-box dashboards, allowing users to navigate the interface that now presents a renewed design with a new palette of colors. The versioning equivalent to the Wazuh manager will allow upgrades without the risk of incompatibilities.

An installation assistant wazuh-install.sh is available to users, allowing any type of installation, whether an all-in-one, single node, or multi-node. This is possible by simply defining a configuration file, with everything connected and secured, including random passwords and generated certificates. In addition, Debian and RPM packages for ppc64le architectures are made available to users.

Now, the agent is able to collect the installed packages inventory on Amazon Linux and Arch Linux, giving support to Vulnerability Detector for reporting vulnerability exposures. In addition, the Vulnerability Detector now manages a vulnerability inventory and produces alerts during the first agents scan and when a new vulnerability is either found or solved.

New integrations to collect auditing logs from Office 365 and GitHub are added to the agent in this new version. A side panel component that displays information about the active module of the Office 365 setup is introduced, and the Wazuh dashboard now includes events from Office 365. Moreover, Wazuh now supports Logcollector with native macOS logs (Unified Logging System), AWS S3 Server Access logs, and Google Cloud Storage buckets and access logs.

The RESTful API availability has been enhanced thanks to the API now using multiple processes. The performance of several API endpoints is also improved, which is especially palpable in large environments. Additionally, the agent batch is upgraded with an increased limit of agents per request and a new set of filters.

Wazuh v4.3.0 brings significant changes to the cluster, which now uses multiple processes to improve the performance. The results in the table below show a significant improvement for the cluster in this new version. The cluster tasks are performed 423% faster than in the previous version, approximately five times faster, while the RAM consumption decreased to a third. This performance is especially appreciable during the setup phase, where the cluster load is at its highest.

We want to mention another Wazuh 4.3.0 significant new feature. It is related to a new Intelligence tab added to the MITRE ATT&CK module. This tab provides further information about MITRE resources such as groups, mitigations, tactics, and techniques using the new Wazuh API endpoints. Additionally, the Framework tab is adapted to the new Wazuh API endpoints.

Finally, it is important to remark that we maintain support for all installation alternatives. Indeed we maintain and extend this support by adding more recent versions.
