Challenge: Vulnerability Scanning

Test yourself by running a live vulnerability analysis scan using the NSE.

Vulnerability scan on server

Connect to the terminal and scan the domain. Use the vuln script without any extra parameters (to scan the default 1,000 ports). This scan might take a while, so use the verbose mode -v to get more information while the scan is in progress.

After the first scan finishes, perform a second scan to verify the initial findings, but this time, use the aggressive mode -A to gather more detailed information. This increased level of detail will help find more vulnerabilities and give a deeper insight into the target server’s security posture.
