VULNERABILITY SCANNERS

Active vulnerability scanners scan networks for detailed information, it initiate traffic to determine security holes. This scanner identifies usernames and groups which are exposed, shows open network shares and exposes configuration and other vulnerabilities in servers.

A passive vulnerability scanner listens in on network and determines vulnerable versions of server and client software both. Passive vulnerability scanners have ability to find client side vulnerabilities that are not found in active scanners.
