When I do a scan using Openvas 9. I can see that some of the vuln is reported twice. For example OS end of life detection is reported twice which are exactly same. Why is that? Is it a bug? or Is it something to do with logic in nasl scripts?
please provide as much information as possible, e.g.:
- Which OS are you working on?
- Did you install via package manager or the github repo?
- Which VTs are duplicated?
- Which scan configuration did you use?
Please let us know, if maybe this already answers your question:
You linked back to my post suggesting it may answer the question, but the same question remains unanswered in my post… I never found a way to find the de-duplicated results for a host. It always showed all findings across all scans, even if different scans found the same thing. After spending weeks trying to sort it out, my final solution was to use a different scanner.
As I already wrote in your topic linked here. A result is always duplicated if you scan the same host without changes several times. You always will get a new result for every scan if the host didn’t change. So the same VT will create at least one result per host per scan.
