We’ve recently downloaded an evaluation of OpenVAS for our organization. While OpenVAS returns some vulnerability alerts, it is not picking up some known vulnerabilities on some systems. For example, I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader 11.0.0 without updates, yet I do not get any alerts about these vulnerabilities. Other vulnerability scanners we are testing were able to detect these vulnerabilities.
I would like to understand why these vulnerabilities are not getting detected. Is there a way that I can see the detailed results for a test against a single NVT?
