Project Scan Report

For this assignment, you will get to use a popular vulnerability scanning tool called Nessus, which is a remote security scanning tool. In addition, Nessus has the ability to run 1200 checks on your computer system. Nessus helps to identify those vulnerabilities that hackers also seek to exploit. For a Windows operating system (OS), you must first download the WINPCAP and then download Nessus.

For this assignment, provide the components listed below.

  1. Include three screenshots—one from each tab of the hosts, vulnerabilities, and history. Compile all three screenshots into one Word document.
  2. Provide a brief description of what you found for vulnerabilities, identify the severity of the vulnerability for each, and explain why you should be concerned about the critical and high severities.
  3. Identify which vulnerabilities should not pass through your computer.
  4. Remember this is a report, not just a submission of screenshots.

The written portion of your report should be a minimum of one page in length and utilize at least the textbook and Nessus website as references. Make sure to use APA style and to include title and reference pages.
