This release provides the following new features. For resolved issues in this release and the update releases, see further below.

For information about how to upgrade to this release, see Upgrading to a new version – Main Release.   

Rebranding to Account for Transition    

Names of products, components, and other items have been rebranded to account for the transition from McAfee to Secure Web Gateway.

Rebranded SNMP SMI and MIB file with updated Org OID for Skyhigh Security    

As part of the rebranding, a new Object Identifier (OID) has been introduced for Org Skyhigh Security. We are updating the SNMP OID from .1.3.6.1.4.1.1230* to .1.3.6.1.4.1.59732*. You'll need to update your management software accordingly if they are referring to these OID. For more details, see Configure event monitoring with SNMP.

Trellix VX Integration to SWG   

The SWG 12.2.0 supports integration with Trellix Virtual Execution (VX). For more details, see Trellix Virtual Execution Integration to SWG.

Detection of OneNote files  

New Mediatype detection has been added for OneNote files to detect .one and .onepkg files. 

InsecureNetlogon   

Insecure NETLOGON channel is blocked by default. To explicitly allow Insecure NETLOGON, a new checkbox is provided in Windows Join Domain Dialogue. For more details, see InsecureNetlogon 

TCP Health Check   

Prior to this features, SWG would send live traffic to Next Hop Proxies to determine its health which resulted in delayed response in case Next Hop Proxy is not healthy. With this feature, SWG will have knowledge of the health of the Next Hop Proxies beforehand. For more details, see TCP Health Check for Next Hop Proxy.

Server Chunk Encoding   

A new check box option is provided in proxy control event settings, which allows to enforce chunk encoding transfer on server requests from SWG. For more details, see Server Side Chunk Encoding

Connect Response Based on HTTP-Protocol  

Connection Established response message always shows HTTP1.0 even if the HTTP Protocol header of the request was HTTP1.1. Now you can configure this under Proxy Control Event, where we can select to send back the Connection Established Response text based on the HTTP Protocol version received.   For more details, see Configure Connection Established Response based on HTTP Protocol Version.

Support to pipelined application/HTTP  

A new media type has been added to media type filtering for detection and Openers for pipelined Application/HTTP. 

New Properties for Multiline Base64  

To support the multiline Base-64, new properties are added in SWG

Support for kdbx-kdb-Filetype  

A new media type has been added to media type filtering to detect files of the kdbx and kdb types.

Client certificate authentication for HTML UI  

Client certificate authentication is now added for the HTML UI, For more details, see Client Certificate Authentication for HTML UI.

Configurable size limit of single XML attributesEdit section 

The configurable size limit of single XML attributes has been increased to reduce errors on startup when having large inline lists.

Vulnerabilities Fixed     

This Secure Web Gateway release includes updates addressing publicly disclosed CVEs, regardless of whether a CVE has been shown to impact customers.
The following medium and higher-level CVEs (CVSS 3.0 >= 4) were involved:

Reference CVE  Description
WP-5784 CVE-2013-9654 The Regular Expressions package in International Components for Unicode (ICU) for C/C++ before 2014-12-03, as used in Google Chrome before 40.0.2214.91, calculates certain values without ensuring that they can be represented in a 24-bit field, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted string, a related issue to CVE-2014-7923.
CVE-2015-5922 Unspecified vulnerability in International Components for Unicode (ICU) before 53.1.0, as used in Apple OS X before 10.11 and watchOS before 2, has unknown impact and attack vectors.
WP-6171 CVE-2018-1311 The Apache Xerces-C 3.0.0 to 3.2.3 XML parser contains a use-after-free error triggered during the scanning of external DTDs. This flaw has not been addressed in the maintained version of the library and has no current mitigation other than to disable DTD processing. This can be accomplished via the DOM using a standard parser feature, or via SAX using the XERCES_DISABLE_DTD environment variable.
WP-6191 CVE-2024-21011 Vulnerability in the Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition product of Oracle Java SE (component: Hotspot). Supported versions that are affected are Oracle Java SE: 8u401, 8u401-perf, 11.0.22, 17.0.10, 21.0.2, 22; Oracle GraalVM for JDK: 17.0.10, 21.0.2, 22; Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition: 20.3.13 and 21.3.9.
