7 Minute Security

Jun 4, 2020

Today's episode is all about getting the most value out of your vulnerability scans, including:

  • Why, IMHO you should only do credentialed scans

  • Policy tweaks that will keep servers from tipping over and printers from printing novels of gibberish ;-)

  • How to make your scan report more actionable and less unruly

  • Turning up logging to 11 (use with caution!)

  • A small tweak to an external scan policy that can result in the difference between a successful or failed scan

  • The nessusd.rules file is awesome for excluding specific hosts and services from your scans
