Vulnerability ID instead of name listed in the results


#1

I’ve got a question. I’m running Openvas/Greenbone on Kali. When a scan runs and completes in the report under the vulnerability column it shows the vulnerability ID number like 1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.108114. But it doesn’t show the name of the vulnerability without selecting the ID. Why is the vulnerability name not being displayed instead of the vulnerability ID number in the results? To look through 1k findings one item at a time will be a real pain to find out what the results are.

I just had to re-run openvasmd --rebuild. Now the vulnerability names are coming in instead of the OID number for the vulnerability.
