MISP 2.4.151 released

MISP 2.4.151 released including a host of bug fixes and a bunch of new features

New features

  • New background processor by @righel
  • Improvements to the CLI tools
  • Bug fixes and improvements

New background processor

  • MISP has been using CakeResque for its background jobs for the better part of a decade. Whilst it has served us well, the library has been stale for a long time and carries a (for us) unnecessary complexity and is generally the most difficult part of the application to debug
  • Luciano “@righel” Righetti has implemented a completely new, compatible background processing engine using Supervisord
  • Queue and execute jobs the same way as you are used to from before, monitor worker progress via the tools provided by supervisord in addition to MISP
  • No scheduling capabilities, these were an unnecessary overhead for us before as we relied on corn jobs as our preferred scheduling mechanism anyway
  • Expect more improvements to this library over the course of the next months, but feel free to switch to using it already now
  • Currently it is completely optional and the old background processor will still be supported for a while
  • Be aware that manual setup steps are required to get the new processor working, refer to the upgrade guide on the procedure, if you decide to start using it already now

Various CLI changes

  • Jakub Onderka has been doing a fair bit of refactoring and improvement of the CLI libraries
  • additional administrative tools added to help monitor and manage your MISP instance (such as redis memory diagnostics, mysql table optimisation tool, etc)

Option to move the system settings to the database

  • Traditionally all system config settings were stored in the config.php file, with a new configuration thanks to Jakub Onderka’s implementation the settings can be moved to the database rather than the file.
  • This should help with persistence for containerised installations

Various improvements

  • The previous version introduced a new STIX library as a replacement for the old one. This change did end up causing some update issues for some installations, the built in updater is now aware of this change and should allow you to easily update via the UI/API updater, with the new STIX library working as intended
