I have just prepared the first release to fix a couple of bugs over version 1.5.50. This is a minor version (1.5.51), which solves the following problems:

  • [BUG] Error when openining TM 1.5.50 on an a PC that has not seen TM yet.
  • [BUG] Custom Threats cause an ArgumentNullException in GetPriorityForThreatTypeName.

Please use the new version instead of the previous one.

You can download the new version from here.

A new version of the Threats Manager is out!

It improves over the last beta, but it is not complete, yet: I have planned some features to be there, but they are not ready, yet. Nevertheless, I decided to publish this new version because it includes many usability feature, like some shortcuts to improve efficiency.

Even if the new version is not complete and does not contain everything I want to put in, if you are using the Threats Manager I recommend you to install the new version.

As usual, the installation can be performed in-place.

Threats Manager v1.5 BETA2 can be downloaded from here.
