A vulnerability comes out and you need to know if you are vulnerable
so you open up your vulnerability scanner and scan your systems to
understand what you need to patch but what is that scanner doing to
determine you are vulnerable. This talk will describe what that
vulnerability scanner is doing and how we at Tenable write local,
remote, and malware checks.
