Vulnerability Scan Details

Report on vulnerabilities discovered on PCI assets. This report looks at vulnerability scan details data produced by firewalls, routers, switches, and any other device that produces vulnerability data.

When these weaknesses are identified, the organization should correct them and repeat the vulnerability scan to verify that they have corrected the vulnerabilities.

This report shows all vulnerabilities identified for selected assets. Use this report to identify specific high and/or critical vulnerabilities on cardholder systems that need to be fixed.
