Vulnerability Status Levels

You'll see the vulnerability status in scan results, vulnerability reports and throughout the user interface. We'll update the status automatically when new scan results are processed.

What are the status values?

New - The first time a vulnerability is detected by a scan the status is set to New.

Active - A vulnerability detected by two or more scans is set to Active.

Fixed - A vulnerability was verified by the most recent scan as fixed, and this vulnerability was detected by the previous scan.

Re-Opened - A vulnerability was reopened by the most recent scan, and this vulnerability was verified as fixed by the previous scan. The next time the vulnerability is detected by a scan, the status is set to Active.
