Network vulnerabilities are identified using the vulnerability tests that Security Center provides to prove that a vulnerability exists. These vulnerability tests perform different actions in order to provide a high level of confidence that a vulnerability actually exists on the scanned target.
In certain vulnerability tests, the accuracy is lower due to reasons depending on the scanned target, such as the collected information within the scan. This kind of vulnerability with lower accuracy is referred to as potential vulnerability.
By default this scan setting is disabled, you can activate this test by doing the following:
- Login to Security Center.
- Click on Scan Network.
- Click on Scan Profiles.
- Click + Add scan profile>Vulnerability profile or click to edit an existing profile.
- Click Scan Settings.
