What is a Web Vulnerability Scanning?
Vulnerability scanning is an automated mechanism where a website, network, or application goes through a scanning process, which allows it to detect any possible risk or vulnerability that might affect security.
By performing a security scan, we can also obtain relevant information such as defects, bugs, and abnormal configurations that can potentially affect the platform’s development.
After the scanning process finishes, a report is created, which will specify the website’s security status. If no threats exist, there won’t be any further action; On the contrary, in cases where threats are identified, implementing the correct measures to remove them is necessary.
What types of Vulnerability Scans can we find?
There are two scan methods and various types of scan categories.
First, there is the non-intrusive vulnerability scan, in which the scanner only performs a review and reporting process.
The second is, “the intrusive vulnerability assessment”, where besides providing a report, the scanner starts working on internal solutions. Keep in mind that this method can often cause some misconfigurations and other types of system damages.
We advise you of some previous research before any action takes place.
Know some Scan Categories
External vulnerability scans focus on working all around the non-restricted areas; in other words, environments open to the internet, such as websites, networks, and all of which can be used by any web user.
Internal vulnerability scans only reach the inner operations areas to prevent them from falling in risk and damage.
Environmental vulnerability scans: Are only used in specific scenarios with specific assigned conditions.
