I had a few questions. I would appreciate if I could get an accurate reply for all of them with necessary evidence.


They are as follows:


1) Does QualysGuard test all 65K ports when we run a scan? I am guessing no unless we specify in the policy right?

2) How many test cases/exploits are tried per port/service?

3) How many requests would be generated from the scanner per minute?

4) Is it possible that the frequency in which the requests are generated could eventually lead to it not being detected by a firewall?
