Risk DashboardUpdated Feb 12, 2024
All detected risks within your network have a State value associated with them. This information appears in several Risk Dashboard tables. For example, the Risks table. You can manually change the State of a risk. Changing this value does not impact whether the Risk Scanner detects any risk on the host machine. If you do not make changes, the default state of a risk is Open.
- Accepted and False Positive risks do not contribute toward the risk score calculation.
- Unsuccessful Validation is a system-assigned state for any risk that was previously marked as Fixed, Waiting Validation but was detected in a subsequent vulnerability scan.
On the Risks page, you can select these risk state values:
Note: These risk state values are also available on the Management Plan page.
