How do I avoid unwanted login attempts when performing a scan?

When running a scan, Holm Security VMP will in most cases perform login attempts to try and detect certain vulnerabilities on your network. Most of these tests can be excluded by not selecting Potentially Dangerous Tests and Password Brute Forcing in your scanning profile or exclude categories such as Brute Force Attacks, Credentials and Default Accounts from the Scan Settings categories.

We will soon add an option to exclude all login attempts, until then, if your environment is still affected by unwanted login attempts, you can try to exclude some or all these tests in you scanning profile:
