AssetView Vulnerability Types

What is the difference between vulnerabilities.vulnerability.types and vulnerabilities.typeDetected?

The two tokens have similar detection types.

 

Recently, we noticed that several QIDs with the vulnerability type "Potential" have been included in results for vulnerabilities.vulnerability.types:"Vulnerability".

 

We utilize vulnerabilities.vulnerability.types believing that "Vulnerability" implies confirmation (given that the other two possible types are "Potential" and "Information").

 

It seems that vulnerabilities.typeDetected:"Confirmed" provides a more accurate result.
