A brand new QID is added that may separate the exterior JS libraries, QID 150545. This new QID may be shall be detected in each Discovery and Vulnerability scans.
Lack of Availability
If JS is loaded from an exterior area, the area must be at all times obtainable. If the loading fails, the JS is not going to be loaded into the applying. Moreover, the file might be renamed, or the URL might change and this may additionally trigger the useful resource to fail to load.

Sub Useful resource Integrity (SRI)
SRI permits for a hash of the file to be verified when fetching the JS file. This may make sure the file has not been modified from what is predicted.
Qualys WAS will detect if SRI will not be in use with QID 150261 Sub Useful resource Integrity (SRI) Not Applied
Content material Safety Coverage (CSP)
CSP permits builders to whitelist domains from the place sources are loaded. This contains JS, photographs, font and extra.
