New version of Lynis scan tool has been recently announced by the developers.
It is a major upgrade, and the result of many months of work. This version includes new features and tests, and many small enhancements. We encourage all to test and upgrade to this latest release.
The biggest change in this release is the optimization of several functions. It allows for better detection, and dealing with the quirks, of every single operating system. Some functions were fortified to handle unexcepted results better, like missing a particular binary, or not returning the hostname.
