VUL Scanning requirements for MS Windows

Based on Technical Articles ID:  KB52601. McAfee KnowledgeBase - How to configure Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 to be scanned by Vulne...

based on the requirements of this article, do you have an idea if allowing the remote registry with "Read only" access to the user can solve the issue?

Have anyone tried to do the authenticated scan with with a user other than "Administrator" ? is there any workaround  the C$ issue? I cannot enable "Administrator" account on my network

Also if anyone had tried to enable Remote Registry service with read-only access ,, did it work or not?

Hello Neena

there is an alternative to "enabling administrator"

Create a service account that is part of the domain admin group. Give the account a strong password. Use this service account to log on to the endpoints.

Once the scan is done , you can remove it.

Re: VUL Scanning requirements for MS Windows

Is the domain admin group part of the local admin group on the endpoints ?

This would allow for the c$ and admin$ connections.

Alternatively you ca have a look at this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/951016.
