we happen to see couple of vulnerabilities status as reopened in reports. What could be the reason for a vulnerabilities status change to reopen.
Reopened mean detected, confirmed to be remediated, then detected again.
There are several reason for that:
This may be the result of a machine being re-imaged without all relevant patches being applied.
Also, this may be result of new software instalation, new patch which made changes in registry....
Sometime deinstallation of patch if there is problem in production after patch is applied.
A bunch of reasons could cause the vuln to be reopened as stated above.
Open your scan results and look at the Results section of the QID, you should see what caused the vuln to be flagged.
