Vulnerability Assessment Details

Do not scan fragile devices

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Define which type of hosts can or can not be scanned

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


This script creates a user interface in the 'Prefs' section of the
client letting users enable or disable certain categories of
network devices and hosts from being scanned.

- Network printers : It is usually a good idea to avoid scanning a
network printer. Scanning a network printer is likely to cause it
to print random data, thus wasting paper and harming the environment


- Novell Netware : Older versions of Novell Netware do not withstand
a vulnerability scan. Please read :

before doing a vulnerability scan against a Novell server.
