I have recently noticed that my top priority scans, that *only* include high vulns, on extensive assets, started to report medium and low vulns.
After checking the scan configurations, I concluded that new low and medium vulns were also included in the scan.
The obvious reason why this happen is because the 'run new checks' options is enabled in the scan. And the problem with this option is that it can't be set on a by risk view. That is, if you open the Vuln Section with the default view, which is 'by Category', you will be able to set the new checks, but this is category based. If you switch to 'by Risk' view, you will not be able to set new check option on the categories.
Sure that low and medium vulns will always be filtered by my asset reports, but checking new vuls other than the level I need, will increase the time of the scan...
I'm not sure if you have a question. You are correct in that we do not have a run new checks by severity option. If this is a feature you are looking for I suggest putting in a FMR associated with your account.
No, this was not a question. I was just sharing some information with the community.
Regarding opening an FMR, I can do that, but I have been submitting FMR for MVM for a long time, and I never get a feedback other than the e-mail confirming the submitting of the FMR (even with platinum). I don't think I will do it. Seems to me that this is another one of those functions that I find hard to have been skipped by the dev team.
Anyway thanks for the feedback.
