How do I enable active exploitation for network scans?

Tests with active exploiting will try to exploit the target by e.g. sending malicious data.

This can be done against an environment to really see if it's exploitable. 

By default this scan setting is disabled, you can activate this test by doing the following: 

  1. Login to Security Center.
  2. Click on Scan Network.
  3. Click on Scan Profiles.
  4. Click + Add scan profile>Vulnerability profile or click mceclip0.png to edit an existing profile.
  5. Click Scan Settings.
  6. Scroll down to Configuration.
  7. Check the box for Include vulnerabilities with known exploits (incl listed by CISA).
  8. Click OK.
  9. Done
