scan with an old selection?

Hello,

 

If I scan a machine on 1/1/13, and I want to use the EXACT same list of vulnerabilities when I scan again on 2/1/13, how can I do that, given that there have been multiple vulnerabilitty updates?

 

What I'm trying to accomplish is validating that items have been remediated, without new vulnerabilities being included, or vulnerabilities for which there are now patches, but didn't exist on 1/1/13.

 

Thanks.

Joe.

    Hi Joe,

     

    Turning off the option in the Scan Config  > Vuln Selection to "Run New Checks" should get you what you need.  Run new Checks is ON I think for most default Scan Templates.  Maybe use a Vulnerability Set - that option is OFF I think by default on Vuln Sets.

     

    Other options - some customers turn off FSL content Updates until after they run their "Validation" type scans.

     

    I hope that helps!

    Cathy, I agree with Joe!

    A compiled list would be very very helpful!

    Joe - you can get a Database Schema if you want it.  You need to open an SR for tracking purposes...  The lower Tiers know the process and can get one to you pretty quickly.

    Hi Joe,

     

    No you're right... it doesn't.  Nor is a list like that something maintained or easily obtainable thru MVM.  I'm sure like you've discussed there are ways to pull that information.  They keep me far too busy with my day job for me to come up with a solution for you over the Community site however.  Product Enhancement Request?

    Hi Joe,

     

    No, you're right.  They get removed after about a month.  We're not going to host them here forever, so in the future  you should plan to get them as they're posted.

     

    Did you need some specific ones?  Email me which ones  (cathy_grim@mcafee.com) and I will send them to you.

     

    Thanks!
    Cathy
