What does this mean on a vulnerability report?
Thank you for your question! Hopefully the following information can clear the details of this vulnerability status up for you:
If you can't resolve a vulnerability immediately, you have the option to temporarily deactivate it. It's not removed from your reports, but it is considered "inactive". The "global" piece of this means that this vulnerability is being ignored on all hosts in your environment. Thus, "global inactive" means that the vulnerability in question has been set to be ignored by all hosts in your environment.
If you'd like to learn more, I recommend starting at the Scans Alert Logic documentation, which is where parts of the information I provided were found. I hope this helps! If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Abby, Thanks! I could not find this in the doc. I will look at your link. Thanks again!1
You're very welcome, Sean. The doc doesn't explicitly use the phrase "global inactive" so that's probably why you couldn't find it. It may do well to be more UI phrasing-specific - thank you for bringing this to our attention!0
