Reporter for Cisco Firepower Release Notes
Reporter for Cisco Firepower (2021-12-22)
  • Added mitigations for log4j “Log4Shell” vulnerability ( Fastvue Reporter now starts Elasticsearch with the JVM property that mitigates the vulnerability in Elasticsearch 5.6.14 (the version that Fastvue Reporter uses).

    Unfortunately, we cannot easily update Elasticsearch or its Log4j version at this time, so Fastvue Reporter may still trigger vulnerability scanners.

    Please see our article on further mitigation steps and latest updates: How to mitigate the Log4j vulnerability on your Fastvue Reporter server.

  • Fixed Security Group filtering for users with a different sAMAccountName to the user portion of their User Principal Name in Active Directory (e.g. sAMAccountName = testuser but UPN =

Reporter for Cisco Firepower Beta (2021-09-28)
  • Fixed a rare deadlock issue that may cause the Fastvue Reporter service to lockup, and the front-end user interface to load very slowly or timeout.
  • Fixed issues where the data outside of the retention policy may not be deleted.
  • Folder paths added to the Windows registry are now quote qualified, resolving ‘unquoted service path enumeration vulnerability’ issues.
  • Removed the ability to change the Data Storage path in Settings | Data Storage, as doing so would cause the user interface to be unresponsive until all data had moved to the new location. This was a poor user experience and had the potential to cause further issues if the server is rebooted during the data move, potentially corrupting data. You can still change the Data Storage location, but this must be done manually. See our knowledge base article: Changing Fastvue Reporter’s Data Location.
