If we open the console on our scanner appliance there is no login required to access the scanner config menus. is this as expected and if so are Qualys going to address this?
This is intended and Qualys will not address it as an issue.
Console access generally means security is all but defeated on most OS and this is no different. So if someone has access to your laptop running the vscanner or an ESX server running a vscanner image, where they can access the scanner console then you have major problems.
That said, the console UI only lets you do so much but doesn't allow command line access to the scanner.
