I know if I use the Remediation ticketing system the age of a vulnerablity is tracked by first and last detection date. Is this information available somewhere else besides the Remediation system?
If you generate a VM report using the "automatic" data (this is an option you choose when creating a report template - enabled by default), you will see the same information: the date of the first detection and additional date.
But I would define the age of a vulnerability, at leat for an ACTIVE or NEW vulneraiblity, by the different between NOW and the first detection date.
Thanks for the info. Kind of a round about way to get to the data. Seems better to have this info available when doing an asset search at least. Also, no way to report against the age of a vulnerability in this way. Looks like I will have to use the remediation system. Thanks.
If you'd like to do use the API if you have access to it, I have some scripts that provides the age of the vulnerabilities....
That would be terrific Eric. Thanks. I will email you.
Please send the APi's to my email address. Thanks
