Checkmarx SCA Release Notes September 2022

We are excited to announce important improvements in our Checkmarx SCA web application…

Key improvements

Support for C# for Exploitable Path

The Checkmarx SCA Exploitable Path feature checks for an exploitable path from your proprietary code to the vulnerable methods in your open source packages. We have added support for C# for this feature (in addition to Java, Python and JavaScript). See Exploitable Path

The queries for configuring Exploitable Path for C# are available here.

NPM Audit Signatures

We now verify the integrity of npm packages by running the npm audit signatures command. This compares the signature of the package that you are using with the signature registered with npm for that package.


To use this feature, it is required that you include the node_modules folder in the project that you are scanning.

Improvements and Bug Fixes





Problem with settings.gradle file

Fixed issue that when a settings.gradle file contains an IncludeBuild property, it had been causing the scan to fail.


Remediation tasks

We now remove the downstream remediation tasks when they don't have any vulnerabilities.


Package Usage

Fixed inaccuracies in how potentially used packages are shown in the UI.
