New cxs Bayes Database

If you use the cxs –bayes feature, then you can download the latest bayesian database for cxs by running:

cxs --bget

This happens automatically when a new version of cxs is released and cxs upgrades, otherwise you will have to run the command above manually.

The new database has been generated from the last 2 years worth of exploits, so should help the accuracy of exploit categorisation.
