QGVM Number of password brute forcing

Question asked by kuhara on Feb 20, 2012

Hi All,


How many number of the password brute forcing does QGVM engine try when I set 'Exhaustive'?

- number of trials each services (ssh, FTP etc.)

- number of trials each user ID (like sa, root etc.)


* Setting place on the New UI


1. Click in the following order: VM -> Scans -> Option Profiles -> New or Edit Option Profile ->

2."New Option Profile" window is opened.

3. Click in the following order: Scan -> check the System and select the 'Exhaustive' in item of Password Brute Forcing.


I would like to know because of explaining scan situation related to account lock of web server to the server administrator.
