I was reading a scan report and found that comment in the LOG:
“Generic web application scanning is disabled for this host via the “Enable generic web application scanning” option within the “Global variable settings” of the scan config in use.”
I wanted to enable it. I found a post on the Information Stack Exchange: OpenVAS - how does it know if an SQL vulnerability is open? - Information Security Stack Exchange
It gives clear instructions to copy the scan config for “Full and fast” and then modify it the following settings:
Name: Global variable settings
I cannot find a “Global variable settings” (see attached image).
Did I do something wrong or is this function depreciated?
Thanks for all your help!
