Is there any way Qualys can filter the external links to FB or You tube in a website , test only the links within the website and display the exact count of links in Links collected ?
Links to FB or YouTube will essentially be ignored if you don't explicitly add them to the crawl scope.. They are noted during the scanning however and included in the "Links Collected" count. The more important number is "Links Crawled", which is the URLs that are in scope for vuln testing.
I hope that helps.
Thanks Dave. Can I re frame your answer for one of my another query the link collected says the total links present in a site including FB or youtube. So we can get the information as how large a web application is and based on that we can split and scan the website to cover them .
You should also be able to review the information from the scan or spider of the site to see these links identified in the site but are going to be excluded for the scan.
