Passive Scan Policy Available for Download via SmartUpdate

The HP Web Security Research Group has released a new policy geared towards "passive" scanning of an application. Passive scanning of an application means that no actual exploits will be attempted, making the assessment safe to perform against production servers. Vulnerabilities detected by this policy include issues of path disclosure, error messages, and others of a similar nature. To download the policy, simply click Smart Update in WebInspect.

So, if I am seeing this, two months on, does that mean the policy has already been applied to my w/i app, via my daily morning routine of running smartupdate?
