Vulnerabilities in the operating system may be caused, for example, by errors in programming or design, weak passwords, or malware activity. When scanning for vulnerabilities, the application analyzes the operating system and searches for anomalies and damaged settings of applications from Microsoft and other vendors.
A vulnerability scan performs operating system security diagnostics and detects software features that can be used by intruders to spread malicious objects and obtain access to personal information.
After the Vulnerability Scan task starts, its completion progress is displayed in the field next to the name of the Vulnerability Scan task in the Tasks section, on the Protection and Control tab of the main window of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
The results of the Vulnerability Scan task are logged in reports.
