The change control process for many organizations dictates that vulnerability assessment scanning can only occur during predefined scan windows. During these times, teams are notified that an assessment will be conducted and that alerts from IDS/IPS sensors, SIEMS, and local AV agents should be ignored or whitelisted from the scanners. This is a very typical... more
