Hi all,


Please could somebody help with outages on production assets and QualysGuard VM...


Logs taken from our production assets show a barrage of http requests source ip was from QualysGuard VM in the US region on the 24th and 26th June 2012. The barrage caused the asset to reboot. We experienced the similar issues on different assets same region last year on 27th June and 28th June 2011. Assets are internal scanned and not public facing. My question is: Did anybody else experience anything across their internal network on or around the same dates? Would a upgrade cause problems e.g 7.2 QualysGuard?



Thank you,
