So recently installed OpenVAS 21 and was testing out the scanner,
I put a VM with Apache/2.4.29 and i scanned with shodan and it shows many vulnerabilities including the CVE-2019-0220
so i started to scan with openvas but only shows 1 low and the rest log
i made sure i had the CVE feed in the server
Also have checked the vulnerability test scanner which shows all checked
Concerning the posted screenshot please note the following:
Most Apache vulnerabilities are detected based on the exposed version within the banner. As most common software like e.g. Apache (similar is valid for Samba, nginx, PHP, …) running on Linux systems is covered by backports (with security updates not raising the actual exposed version) these version checks are “unreliable” (as these would cause false positives like seen on Shodan) and are not shown by default in GVM due to a “low” QoD.
Thanks for the reply, so i edited the filter to this changing the the QOD to 0
which then gave me alots of alerts of the CVE meaning that might be false positive?
reading a bit found this about the QoD, meaning best to leave it default to 70?
QoD is short for Quality of Detection and shows the reliability of the detection of a vulnerability.
The QoD was introduced with GOS 3.1. Results created with earlier versions are assigned a QoD
of 75 % during migration.
By default, only results that were detected by NVTs with a QoD of 70 % or higher are displayed.
The possibility of false positives is thereby lower. The filter can be adjusted to show results with a
lower QoD (see Chapter 8.4.1 (page 176)).
